OUR MEMBERS IN ROMANIA
Alpha Transilvana Foundation is a non-governmental and non-profit organization established in 1992. A charity and humanitarian foundation, providing help for physically, psychically and socially disabled individuals without political, ethnic, religious and racial conditions or patrimonial purposes.
The mission of Alpha Transilvana Foundation: “Working in the community, for the community we are close to the real pulse of life. We consider ourselves like an organization called to raise the awareness and fill the thousands of concrete gaps on the level of personal, familial and social life of people, needs that due to their extraordinary diversity cannot be solved only through laws and allocation of funds”
ARSBH, gathers data on children and adults with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, buys the necessary drainage systems and valves for surgery, plans the date of operations with participating neurosurgeons in Romania, advises parents, and stays in contact with children who have been operated on, particularly those in orphanages.
Our Association, under the guidance of the Curative Education Federation, has developed a specific curative education curriculum, approved by the Ministry of Education. In the autumn of 2006, Hans Spalinger Association (AHS) became the first NGO in Romania to offer education services to children with severe mental disabilities through the state special education network. We now have 4 curative education classes, 11 teaching staff trained in the curative education alternative, while the running costs and staff wages as well as meals and transportation of the children to and from the centre are covered by the state education system. 2006 was also the year when our association started to offer support and counselling services to the parents of children with disabilities.
