One Million Stars for Solidarity

If you look at the picture, you probably remember that we used to organize in every October the event entitled „One Million Stars for Solidarity”.

Last year the pandemic situation forced us to retreat into the virtual space in order to protect our health and we must remain online this year, too. Because of this, it is even more important for us to express our solidarity with the needy. Even though we cannot be physically present to enlighten with candles a public space, we all have the possibility to light some candles in our homes, to place them in our windows and to express our solidarity through these symbolical gestures.

We, Caritas workers, will light our candles on the 15th of October at 7 p.m. at the backyard of the new Caritas Hous from Tîrgu Mureș, Mărăști Street, Nr.36. The event will be broadcasted online on our Facebook page, so that everyone can join us. Here, the atmosphere of our event will be increased by a cultural programme: a little band formed from talented young people will perform some retro and modern hits, while Csaba Fehér guitar artist will play some beautiful English songs. The artists offered their time and help as donation. We thank them very much!

Beside showing our solidarity through symbolical gestures, we can help them by donating, indeed.

This year’s donations will be used for the needy in our care. Your offerings will help the better supply of a disadvantaged child, a young person with disabilities or a sick elderly.

For example:
15 RON / 3 EUR is enough for a hot meal,
60 RON / 12 EUR is enough for an hour of home care,
90 RON / 18 EUR is enough for a developmental therapy session,
130 RON / 26 EUR is enough for a one-day care in a residential center.

You can donate online here , via bank transfer or personally by placing your offerings in our donation boxes mentioned below, until the 8th of November:
