The Romanian word for “orchard” is Livada. Just as an orchard bears lasting fruit, Livada Orphan Care’s vision nurtures at-risk children so that they too, will have a chance to bear lasting fruit. Livada Orphan Care works deep in the heart of Transylvania, Romania, to help orphans and susceptible Gypsy children through Christian social work, humanitarian aid and ministry. About 1,000 people are served monthly in group homes, mentor apartments and foster care ministries, and through outreach and abandonment prevention efforts. Jackson Healthcare Charities is proud to support Livada Orphan Care’s efforts to care for orphans from the cradle until they become faithful, interdependent members of society.
