Statistics shows that in 2008 the number of single parent families has doubled compared to 2002, 90% of single parent families being composed of parent and child (cit. Guide of best practices for equal opportunities compliance, NBS, 2009). At the same time, Romania occupies first place in Europe in terms of the number of abandoned children.
“We are happy and honored to have the tremendous support of all artists who have decided to sustain us by donating works of art for children raised by single mothers and supported by our Association. In particular we thank Mrs. Silvia Radu, who managed to inspire a solidarity gesture of wonderful and special people and not just by what they create, but also by the ways in which they turn their creations back to the community. ” Georgiana Neuman, Executive Director, ACSIS.
