Charity

If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.” Bob Hope

I want to write about something else today… about charity!

Helping handThe word “charity” entered the English language through the Old French word “charité” which was derived from the Latin “caritas”. Originally in Latin the word “caritas” meant preciousness, dearness, high price. From this, in Christian theology, “caritas” became the standard Latin translation for the Greek word “agapē”, meaning an unlimited loving-kindness to all others, such as the love of God. This much wider concept is the meaning of the word charity in the Christian triplet “faith, hope and charity”.

I use this opportunity to bring to your attention a charitable organization: Children’s Relief Network - Bringing hope to the hurting children of Romania.

Mission
Established in 1995, the Children’s Relief Network works to bring hope to the hurting, impoverished children and youth of Romania by providing them with physical, medical and educational resources so they may live a productive life and become agents of hope in their nation and around the world. Our first permanent residence, the Villa Boys’ Home, was opened in 1994, followed by the opening of House of Hope for Girls. Other projects include the Village of Hope Baby House, Family Homes Project, Boys Home Project, Hope Rescue Center, Abandoned Baby Hospital Project, Village of Hope, Apartment for Boys and the Life Skills Mentorship project.

You can find details about these projects on romanianchildren.org/projects.html

Please check out their website as well: romanianchildren.org.

I hope you’ll find charity in you heart and contribute a little bit to help these children.

Thank you!
