ECR works with some of the poorest families in Romania. They have all been affected by HIV Aids, through contaminated blood transfusions. These families rely on ECR for support. The vision is led by Paul, originally from Blackwood. ECR demonstrates the gospel of Christ - each one is precious, each one is loved, and with God there is always hope.
Thanks to the help of Paul and the team, families have an improving quality of life, increased opportunities, including the chance of employment. Some of the children have become young adults. Some of the young adults are now becoming parents themselves - to children born free of HIV Aids...
The church takes part in a sponsored walk each summer at Bryn Bach Park in Tredegar. Over the winter period we have an “Honesty Table” in church, where people place unwanted gifts & other items. Anyone who likes what they see can leave a donation and take the item home.
ECR has two Charity Shops - one next to the Post Office in Fleur-de-Lys and the other in Cefn Fforest. The shops are entirely manned by volunteers, meaning that all proceeds can go directly to support the work in Romania. Find out more here
