WE ARE HERE TO HELP!
Our mission echoes the „ethos” of the organisation: „summoning the churches and the civil society for a common response to social problems in Romanian society”. Lead by our mission statement, our objectives are built towards the Inter-Christian and inter-religious Commission, conferences and consultations, ecumenical prayers, lay and ecumenical youth formation.
By our GOAL, we promote the social inclusion of marginalized people, we empower the social reintegration of high-risk persons, equal opportunities, and the fight against human trafficking, and discrimination. We offer assistance to refugees and migrants seeking integration in Romania and we have an emergency response in case of disasters. We strengthen ecumenical and inter-ethnic cooperation for peace and stability in order to alleviate segregation in multi-ethnic communities and ensure respect for human rights.
We are here to help, being guided by our compass that has a strong foundation: our VALUES. We believe in, diversity, inclusion, rights, empowering, and dignity for all.
“Churches, in mutual respect, acting together in Christian faith for social justice, human dignity and integrity of creation.”
AIDRom Multifunctional Centres for Counselling of persons of high risk from Bucharest, Iasi and Timisoara, as well as the shelters for migrants opened by AIDRom, follow the prompting of the Bible.
„I was a stranger and you took Me in” (Matthew 25:35)
In accordance with the 2018-2023 Strategy, approved by the General Assembly, our Organization promotes the visible unity, dialogue, and common confession of the Churches in Romania, opening the way to the establishment of a climate of cooperation with the State Institutions, as well as with traditional partners from abroad.
Through its programs, AIDRom and its partners carry out activities in various areas of public interest such as:
– social services: multifunctional counseling centers (Iași, Bucharest, Timișoara), reintegration of social groups in risk situations: victims of human trafficking, unemployed, migrants.
– socio-professional services: reintegration into the labor market, vocational training;
– provision of social, psychological, and legal services in the field of migration
AIDRom supports, coordinates, and facilitates long-term sustainable development activities and has an immediate reaction when a humanitarian crisis occurs.
