I’ve been meaning to post this one for quite some time. This is a quiet sleepy morning in Holdita, Suceava County on Easter Sunday.
On a typical Saturday we start with our fruit and veggie market…
We move to a street fair on Arthur Verona:
And it ends in the park……
The 12th edition of Our Big Day Out – Children’s Day.
I had the unique privilege to photograph an entirely volunteer initiative that aims to provide a bit of tender love and care to orphans and institutionalized children, often forgotten by Romanian society, on Saturday, June 5th. Our Big Day Out (OBDO) is a social activity initiated by Sister in 2005.
People from a variety of fields get together to spend a full day with orphans and institutionalized children, providing them with much appreciated gifts while spending a part of the day playing while imparting much needed attention. The group heads out caravan-style and visit institutions or shelters, and spend time with those that seem to have been left aside. This year they put together 600 presents.
I want to thank everyone there for truly inspiring me and hopefully others.
Your hearts are in the right place!
E.M.M.A – sharing the experience of tragic loss is sometimes the only way to move forward.
