Happy Birthday Emmanuel Centre!

September 14 was the start of the new school year in Romania – and also the first anniversary of the opening of the Emmanuel drop-in therapy centre in Suceava. The day was marked with a party for past and present users, celebrating the wide range of services Emmanuel now offers to the sixty-plus children with special needs who currently attend the centre.

The children recited poems, sang songs and enjoyed some traditional dancing. Then they helped build a giant cake of painted polystyrene. This, of course, whetted their appetite for some real cake, which fortunately – delicious and creamy – wasn’t long in coming!
