Casa Trandafirilor (House of Roses)
We were desperate to help our young people and joined forces with The Myosotis Trust
, another charity working in the area with whom we had had loose connections over the years. In 2012 we were able to open Casa Trandafirilor (House of Roses) which provides a home for five of the young people from Casa Linda and a young man also from the state care system who joined "the family" in September 2015. He has been known to Myosotis since he was little. The house is not owned by RAKE but is being loaned rent free on a long term basis. Ideally we will raise the £50,000 necessary to buy the house and help secure the long term future for our young family.
Casa Trandafirilor is run by Associatia Myosotis Romania (the Romanian branch of The Myosotis Trust) but RAKE provided all the funds to set up the home and is currently funding the majority of the running costs. Some funding is received from the state in the form of disability allowances which the residents are entitled to. All the residents have learning difficulties and together with the Myosotis team our aim is to provide a safe and caring environment where the young people feel valued and can develop to become as independent as possible. We want them to become accepted and integrated into their local community.
