"Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those throughout the world who live and die in poverty and hunger. Give them through our hands, this day their daily bread; and by our understanding love, give peace and joy. Amen" - Mother Teresa of Calcuta.

This prayer is very much incarnated in Romania through the Be A Giver Project (also known as the BAG Project). Elderly people, widows and orphans, as well as poor families and children from almost all over Romania are the annual beneficiaries of this project. Since 2008, the Elpis Foundation has been a blessing to approximately 2800 people in Romania through the generous donations of Romanian families and Romanian churches.

For a donation of $20.00 we can provide a bag filled with food supplies that will be given to the needest people. In exchange you will receive information about the development of the project and the impact this has on the lives of those who benefit of it. A monthly subscription will provide bags for 12 families.

This project is historically significant in that Romanian families and churches are joining hands to provide for the poorest around them. These families and children receive bags consisting of: food supplies, sanitary articles, warm clothing, school supplies, small toys, sweets, and Christian literature. House visits by volunteers who are distributing the bags to these families providing counseling and encouragement, which presents the opportunity of sharing the Gospel not primarily by words but by deeds.

"If you cannot feed one hundred, then feed one." - Mother Teresa of Calcuta
