Another of our inspirational young people working hard to help others. Colleen is in Romania with the Romania Project NLYC
m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2003105336579755&id=1763070403916584 #proudNext up in their blog is Colleen someone who when first began the programme came on her own and has now became a massive part of the team with her passion to help others and her support to her group. Well done Colleen and continue the journey that you are on.

Leaving on Wednesday morning to start my journey to Romania was nerve wrecking, not knowing what to expect my head was filled with thoughts the whole way to Baraolt.
Finally arriving at the town after 3 in the morning we were all shattered and headed to bed to be up bright and early on Thursday morning, this was the first time we were experiencing Baraolt properly.
The first place we went on Thursday morning was the Laura Haz, a disability centre, I was nervous walking up the street to the centre as I didn’t know what I was walking into but going into the room with all the kids was unreal. I have never seen so many happy faces to see a group of strangers, each and every one of the kids jumped up laughing and hugging everyone which filled me with so many happy emotions. The atmosphere in the Laura Haz is absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to experience it more & more over the next few days.
After the Laura Haz we visited Piroski, a girl who was in the orphanage when the past 2 groups had visited, she was adopted by her granny a few months ago and is now living with family. Visiting Piroski was hard seeing her living conditions and belongings puts things into perspective, however she is with people who love and care for her which is most important.
After we visited Piroski we all went to the family home, however when we got there most of the kids were out doing other things so we didn’t really get to fully meet them until later on that night when we went for dinner with all the kids which was amazing. Taking the kids for dinner let us get to know them and start building relationships with them. Before taking the family home for dinner we visited the orphanage which was completely different than the Laura Haz, the orphanage was much harder for me to feel happy emotions however making the kids smile and building special bonds with each of them is the most unreal feeling.
Yesterday we held a fun day in the school which was brilliant, we had kids from the Laura Haz, the family home and the orphanage come together for an amazing time with music games and sweets which was unreal as it really helped me to get buzzing which was amazing. I made a special connection with one of the kids from the family home at the fun day and it is continuing to grow which I never expected to happen.
After the fun day we had time to chill which gave me a chance to take everything in and realise how lucky I am to be sitting in Romania building unreal bonds and making someone’s week a small bit better.
Today we went to the hospital to visit the kids ward and visit one of the kids who was previously in the orphanage, this was really hard as she is very sick and seeing her was heart breaking. We also got a tour of the hospital which made my heart sink as it shows how little resources this town has yet everyone is so happy and we complain about what we have when we have everything and more.
After the hospital we went to the family home and had a small party with all the kids and staff which was amazing, going to the family home really helped lift my spirits as we had the music pumping and everyone was buzzing. Getting to spend more time with the kids as well was amazing as seeing their happy faces and their love for you be gave back is amazing. Taking everything into perspective, this trip is helping me to learn and grow in ways I couldn’t back home hopefully I can take everything I’m learning back to Belfast and put it into my volunteer work in the 174 and the youth club, as well as this trip has taught me that if you want to grow you have to push yourself which I’ll also be taking home with me and putting into my volunteering.
