There has always been a need for renovations and construction work since FCE’s work in helping  abandoned children and youth began in the early nineties.

The first construction work involved renovations of the state run institutions to improve the children’s living conditions. This was then followed by a camp centre, Casa Albă, Casa Silvia, transit homes, the office, the depot and the youth club.

In 2008 the new guest and volunteer house was completed for use. It was initially used as an office building in Sweden that was donated to the foundation. Volunteers took the building apart and many of them also came to Romania to reconstruct it.


In 2009 the half way house Brândușa, for use by our young people, was finally completed.

In 2010 the construction of a new camp centre in Chișlaz was started and the first camps were held there in the summer of 2011

2012 – 2013 the Family home ”Poiana Verde” was built in Marghita.

2014 the Depot had a much needed extension and at the same time the Day Center got new, nice premises in record time when two donated barracks were built together with the Carpentry’s wall.

Later, extensions have been made to the family homes and 2017 was renovation and extension of the Second Hand store completed.

FCE has a Construction team with employees, but during all these years, skilled people, mostly from Sweden, have come to Marghita to help with the construction work.

Construction trips are organised several times a year and the construction teams usually stay 1-2 weeks and work intensively. A lot of things get done by these teams and those who come also get a glimpse of FCE’s work. Many people in the teams are coming back again and again.
