Alex Agoston Prosthetic Limbs

Alex Agoston, from Lupeni, Romania, lost both his arms and one foot in a tragic train accident at the age of 8. Despite his ordeal, he's grown into a strong, optimistic young man with a positive outlook on life. Educated in Heidelberg Germany, he's proficient in operating a computer, and he fluently speaks three languages. 

In 2009, the Romanian National Television had a fundraising campaign for a new set of prostethics that included a myoelectric arm. Once the funds were gathered, the CEO of the company in charge of manufacturing his prosthetics vanished with all the money never to be seen again. Alex's story was the subject of an award winning report for the Romanian TV. Watch Alex's story HERE.

Children Aid has started a new effort of raising the much needed money for his prosthetic arms and leg, allowing Alex to get his life back. The amount is 17,500 EUR which amounts to approximatively US$24,000. If you'd like to help, please visit our Donate page.

Rebuilding Schools

This project aimed to rebuild a school which was the heart of a small community of 600-700 people. The goal was to double the number of classroom seats, from 150 to 300. Due to the lack of space, many kids had to walk for hours, summer or winter, just to attend the school in the nearby village, 5 miles away.
