2021 Online Auction
PHFTC is pleased to announce that we are doing our first virtual auction starting on November 15th and running until the 18th! This fundraiser will hopefully be a hit and a great blessing to our budget while giving you, our supporters, a fun way to do some shopping! Please check us out at https://go.rallyup.com/phftc-auction-2021. More information in the week ahead!
News from Romania
Covid continues to rise in Romania again and it is not immune to our hospital in Sibiu. Please pray for the safety of our nurse liaison, Cornelia, and her fellow colleagues, as well as the social babies we have there at the moment. Currently, we are caring for 8-10 abandoned babies in the pediatric hospital.
Our Romanian Outreach Coordinator, Andrea, returned from the States and quarantined for two weeks. She had Covid while in the States, but the county is refusing to let her upload her American information on their green certificate. This is severely limiting where she can go or shop and we have a couple of foundations that need more supplies before our budget closes out next month. This is very frustrating to Andrea and complicating things for us.
News from Puerto Rico
Our sponsorship for our student is going well. There have been some speed bumps along the way that test the teacher's endurance. Our student has had a very traumatic childhood with 30 foster home placements in 16 years. His attachment and PTSD flares quite a bit when faced with a frustrating situation. Please pray that he will continue to advance academically and feel safe and secure at the school.
PHFTC was able to deliver many supplies of backpacks, academic supplies and cleaning products to Casa Juan Bosco, the afterschool program we have been helping! Their gratefulness was overwhelming as they seek to help these high risk children.
We are also hoping to help with supplies for children at one of the group homes that Ramona and Kristen toured in the spring. We are waiting to hear back from them.
Recently, we partnered with Maria Gimma and her class at the Seven Valley New Tech Academy to provide a video of the storybook Goldilocks and the Three Bears read in Spanish by the students. Ramona then forwarded this video to the director of the Pediatric Hospital in San Juan for the entertainment of the social children housed there.
