During the winter, Love Light Romania distributed vegetables to the Roma community so that the children wouldn’t starve or have to beg. This is just one of the many projects that Love Light Romania’s founder, Jo Jowett has established. Fifteen years ago, they rescued some children from a notorious orphanage. Now young adults, and, like the Roma children Jo helps, are given opportunities to go to school and learn new skills to break the cycle of poverty and poor cultural self-image inflicted on them.

Jo and her husband, Ron have a guest house where you can stay and volunteer to help in the various projects and or tour the beautiful countryside.
