Axelent’s storeroom walls to Romanian charity project

The churches and parishes in the Partille district of Gothenburg have been working hard for the past 30 years to help people in need in eastern Europe. The Swedish organisation “Östhjälpen i Partille” was set up in 1990 to provide humanitarian aid to eastern Europe and a group of people travelled to Romania with a shipment of supplies.

When they returned to Sweden, they wanted to continue their relief efforts in some way. They decided to purchase some land and build a nursing home for children with severe disabilities. Negative attitudes towards disabled children had long existed in Romania and help was desperately needed. Aurora nursing home was completed in 1992 and since then it has provided care for 16 children, all with various kinds of physical and mental impairments.

Change programme produced results

The business has 28 employees and the programme has been based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child adopted by the United Nations. The project was initially met with considerable scepticism, but educational initiatives have succeeded in changing the attitude of public authorities toward disability. The project has received a lot of positive attention in both the media and press, and it serves as a model for how to work with and care for people with disabilities.

Serious need for elderly care too

Once the children’s home had been built, it was apparent that there was also a serious need for care facilities for the elderly. So the Aurora Senior project was started. Five Romanian builders began working on the project alongside Swedish volunteers in the spring of 2017 and the date for moving in is set for the autumn of 2019.

Modern home for the elderly

Aurora Senior is a modern home for the elderly with room for 32 residents. The building also has a common room/dining room, commercial kitchen and administration areas.

It was also decided to construct storage space in the cellar. The space would be used to store not only residents’ items but also food, such as root vegetables and potatoes. So they got in touch with Axelent.



Volunteering for charity

All the initiatives undertaken by the Östhjälpen charity organisation are funded by money that comes from its second-hand store in Jonsered and from collections and donations through the churches’ activities and the many hours given by volunteers.

Axelent is pleased to be able to contribute to the project with storage systems and hopes that they will be of good use!
