We believe no child belongs in an institution. We are supporting families who have children with special needs to care for them at home.
Parent's Association - ASCHF
ASCHF is a voluntary association of families with children with disabilities in Giurgiu County. The group has around 70 members. Our professional volunteer programme supports the parents group by providing therapy input for the children and education sessions for the parents, many of whom have very limited access to this kind of help. We have also provided funding for their annual Tabara camp and equipment.
Comber is a partner from 2009-2011 in PREVI Early Intervention Project, funded under EU Daphne III, with KOS (Belgium), Samaritans (Bulgaria) and Iminal de Copil (Romania), which is helping to establish early intervention centres in Romania and Bulgaria. The purpose of the project is to help families who have children with disabilities to keep them at home and prevent institutionalisation in later life. Comber has provided Irish trainers who have travelled to Bulgaria and Romania to work with local staff, as well as hosting an exchange visit to Ireland.
