Sponsor Rares – 14 Years Old

Rares was left abandoned in the snow.

Rares and his older sister were abandoned by their mother outside in the snow when they were four and five, respectively. They were eventually found by a kind soul who turned them over to the child protection. Child protection placed them in a state-run orphanage (for a few months) then into an Orthodox monastery. They remained at the monastery for about a year before they were eventually transferred to another state-run orphanage where they stayed until coming to Finding Hope in late 2019.

Rares says living at the state-run orphanage was like being in jail!

Rares says he hated the state-run orphanage – noting it was like “living in a prison where everyone gets beat and no one is ever loved.” He would sometimes cry because of the hopelessness he felt there. We are very happy that Rares finally found a family here at Finding Hope. He tells us that at last he has happy in life.

Rares is a hard worker.

Rares likes to cook and do manual labor. He especially likes building and doing construction work, hoping one day to become a builder.
