  1. Hey Izidor,

    I’m a Romanian social worker who use to work for a British NGO (CCFGB), that worked with children from Bihor county orphanages. I am now in Australia working still as a social worker. I know what you’re talking about when you talk about your life in the orphanage. It improved a lot after 1994 when I started to work but there were still not a good place for a child. I am impressed with your determination to advocate for the orphans. Good luck!
