On Thursday, August 5th 2010, the Gustiuc family from the village of Sarateni Hancesti district, received the keys to their new house in the village of Bujor granted to the “Where is their home?” program launched by the Edelweiss Foundation in collaboration with the PRIME TV channel.

Angela and Veaceslav became homeless due the floods. Their house in the village of Sarateni was completely covered by water and collapsed after a few days. The Gustiucs, together with their six children moved temporarily into their grandparents’ house and all eight of them lived in one room. Their tragedy started even before the floods, when Vladislav, their eldest son, had an accident while working on a construction site and became physically disabled. He had several surgical interventions, the doctors are hopeful, saying that he’ll be able to walk again, but the recovery process is very slow.

The Gustiucs are a tight-knit family, and became even more consolidated after the tragedy. Even though they were offered the possibility to attend a summer camp, the children chose to stay together with their parents and support them while they waited for assistance,.

The assistance came form the Edelweiss Foundation, when on August 5th Ms. Neta Sebusca, the Executive Director of the Edelweiss Foundation handed them the keys and welcomed them in their new home in the village of Bujor.

Angela Gustiuc expressed her gratitude to the Edelweiss team, especially to Mr. Vlad Plahotniuc for his gesture, mentioning that the family will be grateful their entire life for the hope and confidence given to them.
