Bethany is a special gift from God for all who the people who call it their home… it is an oasis of peace and grace.
It was opened on October 17th 2003, after ten years of hard work and sacrifices, after a long term investment on the part of JHOR and with the help of countless individuals and teams who helped out by donating both money and time & work for the construction of the building. The need for such a home has been on the hearts and minds of the people from Hateg for many years. A group of Christian believers, among which was also the late Timotei Valean had this initiative in 1990, right after the Revolution.They started the project and were able to get the land but in order to carry on, they decided to ask for the help of Pastor Peter Dugulescu, who had served the church in Hateg for twelve years. This is how Bethany became a JHOR project.With the help of God and many special people, the work was finished in 2003 and Bethany has become home for 7 elderly people who didn’t have anywhere else to go.
At present, Bethany offers shelter to 24 elderly people and 6 abandoned young women – orphan girls who have nobody by their side. Bethany home is a special gift from God for all those who live there, an oasis of peace and grace.
Tavica Valean is the director of the project at the moment. She is assisted by a devoted team, who are specialized in offering the residents the care they need, as well as much love and understanding.
