“The most sublime act is to set
another before you.”
Fr Petru Munteanu was calling us at the beginning of the pandemic describing the situation he was confronting every day. The Romanian lockdown found many people unprepared facing sickness, hunger and isolation. “I received many phone calls from parents with young children asking for help. Yesterday, families with 3-4 children came to the church. I gave them everything that I had available.” said Father Petru. This happened inNeamț County, Săvinești and its surrounding areas where people who live not on a salary, but on what they earn each day from day labor, were facing hunger. Elderly people isolated in their homes have no food to put on the table. The church was closed. Many tears and suffering” saw Fr Petru who did not waste time and act immediately. He raised awareness about the situation and many people were getting involved. Using the catering services from “Together for Social Solidarity Foundation”, Fr Petru was feeding around 200 people daily for almost 5 months. It was not easy to accomplish this without self-sacrifice. Together To Help being at the beginning of its existence, couldn’t help as much as it was needed for Fr. Petru’s battle with the pandemic crisis. Somebody from here who was battling cancer had a great heart and donated for this cause. Good hearted people from here have donated to this cause. We couldn’t do it without you! We are thankful to Fr Petru for being such a great role model and leader of our organization!
