Help a Widow and Her 4 Children Build a Home

On September 16, 2019 Father Horea Petru Racea lost his life in a tractor accident while bringing firewood for his family. He is survived by his wife and four young children. 

Father Horea was an Orthodox Priest, serving four communities in the remote rural area of Vidacut, Harghita County (central Romania). He was 45 years old and the sole provider for his family. His wife, Presvytera Nadia is a homemaker, raising their children aged 2, 7, 11 and 13. 

The four parishes that Father Horea served are very small (approximately 100 faithful in total) and are unable to support Presvytera Nadia and her family long term. She will have to vacate the rectory in the near future and is in desperate need of support to build a home. Presvytera intends to move with her parents and build an addition to the modest village house that her parents own, so that her four children can have a decent living space.

The estimated construction costs are $45,000. The amount would be used to extend the existing house with 2 bedrooms, 1 living room and 1 bathroom. 

Please consider making a donation that can make this family’s unimaginable burden a little lighter. Presvytera Nadia is a selfless, hard working mother. Her only wish at this point is to help her children get through this tough time as easily as possible.
