Casa Jubilee is a charity dedicated to the Christian care of vulnerable women in Romania.
Casa Jubilee was set up, initially to serve as a series of refuge shelters which gave basic protection and food to abandoned street children. Over the years more than fifty girls have been provided for, including those who had to care for their own young children. The current female residents are all mentally challenged and traumatised to varying degrees. The Centre is greatly assisted by the local clinic nurse, who visits daily to administer the women’s medication and ensure their health issues are dealt with.Read More

Each of these fulfil a necessary purpose, helping to add to the well-being and comfort of each resident but some refurbishment is still required.Read More
