Bakery equipment for Romanian orphanage

Requested by

Bread of Life International, Inc.

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Street children are common in this part of Europe. Children are hungry, cold, dirty and left to fend for themselves. Families who cannot feed their family often fall apart when one or both parents must leave in search of scarce economic opportunity. We have set up Feeding Centres is some of the poorest and most remote villages in Romania at the invitation of local authorities who have no other safety net to offer. There are currently 19 of these feeding centres in Romania which we have set up and continue to supply from our warehouse in Bucharest Romania. In addition there are two special feeding centres as explained below.

What is your project and how will it help?

Local children of poor families are invited to come and receive one nutrition packed meal each day at the Feeding Centre.
The Bread of Life orphanage in Brosteni Romania serves as a special Feeding Centre. Besides supplying meals for the 100+ children who live at the orphanage the children themselves take daily meals by bicyle to poor elderly people in the village.

Bread of Life currently purchases bread to supply the orphanage and feeding centres. Bakery equipment or funds to purchase it are is needed. This will allow us to make our own bread and lower costs. This will also provide work and training for teenagers from the orphanage.

The current cost of bread to Bread of Life is hundreds of dollars per month and this would be greatly reduced by the set up of facilities to make our own in bulk.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Currently our major donor is Feed the Hungry 530 E Ireland Rd, South Bend IN Representatives from Feed the Hungry have visited Romania more than once recently to confirm that donations are being distributed efficiently and effectively.
We have recently received pallets of food from Kids Against Hunger satellites at our Hamilton Texas warehouse. Their corporate office is 5401 Boone Ave North New Hope, MN A number of churches and private donors support Bread of Life with donations of cash and goods. More references and contact information can be provided upon request.

We are now looking for donors who can fund the purchase of bakery equipment or who can donate the necessary equipment.

Please detail the resources that you need.

We estimate the total cost to purchase equipment to set up a bakery at the orphanage in Brosteni is about $7,000 USD. We are looking for a donor who can donate this equipment or donate funds for the purchase of equipment. The equipement needed includes an oven, mixer, proof boxes, baking sheets and racks, work tables, and sink. New or used equipment would be fine.
