Romȃnul Corp is inviting you to a special midsummer event on Sunday, June 20 at the Boothe Memorial Park in Stratford CT starting with 4 PM.

We invite you to wear your traditional Romanian blouse and to join us in celebrating this global movement and a great modern tradition of the Romanian-American communities and of the Romanians everywhere.

This is an event centered on the Romanian blouse, organized for the first time in Connecticut, on the longest day of the year!

We invite Romanian-American businesses from Connecticut to promote their business at this event or to sponsor the event.

The organizer provides the rented pavilion (nr. 2), cold soft drinks and snacks. We suggest a donation of min. $10 at the event or online at www.romanulonline.org/donations via Paypal to cover for the expenses. Thank you for your support!

RSVP until Saturday June 19 on Facebook at www.facebook.com/romanulonline (Romanian Blouse event).

This is an event celebrated around the summer solstice day and St. John’s nativity day (Sȃnzienele, June 24). Since this year June 20 falls on Father’s Day in the US, this is also a special way to celebrate the fathers in our community.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at this special event.

* Special credits for the idea go to the La Blouse Roumaine community www.lablouseroumaine.io, which on June 17, 2021 will launch a platform and a magazine dedicated entirely to this subject.

Dragi prieteni,

Sperăm că sunteţi cu toţii bine ȋn această perioadă tumultoasă ȋn situaţia actuală legată de măsurile de prevenție ce trebuie luate ȋmpotriva răspȃndirii coronavirusului.

Organizaţia Romȃnul Corp ȋmpreună cu Consulatul Onorific al Romȃniei ȋn Hartford  lanseaza propunerea de a ajuta pe cei care nu se pot expune ȋn public. E o ocazie remarcabilă să demonstrăm că ne gândim unii la alții și că putem fi uniţi mai ales acum în vremuri de molimă și izolare.

Pentru cei care doresc sa ajute in cadrul comunitatii romanesti din Connecticut, am deschis o pagina de donatii: https://romanulonline.org/donations/. Sumele adunate vor merge catre persoane care au nevoie de măști de faţă, alimente sau alte servicii.

Dacă știţi ȋn comunitatea romȃno-americană persoane în vârstă care locuiesc singure sau persoane cu nevoi speciale care au nevoie de cumpăraturi (alimente sau medicamente), ȋi putem ajuta ȋmpreună. Sunt multiple metode disponibile de achizitionare de bunuri sau oferire de servicii:

• Comunicare folosind formularul online  (click)

• Comandă pe Internet efectuata si livrata la domiciliu de către magazin
• Comanda pe Internet efectuata de magazin, dar ridicata si livrata la domiciliu de catre voluntari, fara contact fizic dintre voluntari si membrii communitatii.
• Comanda pe baza de lista preluata, efectuata, si livrata de voluntari, fara contact fizic dintre voluntari si membrii communitatii.

Pentru solicitarea serviciilor noastre, ne puteti contacta la numarul de telefon, (203)307-0123, adresa de email info@romanulonline.org sau prin Facebook https://www.facebook.com/romanulonline/

Actualizare: ȋn Romȃnia, aceeași idee de a ajuta pe cei vulnerabili s-a format spontan pe baza unui grup de voluntari. Cumpărături la ușa ta  – un proiect de reacţie rapidă. Distribuiţi mai departe pentru cine are nevoie de ajutor in Romania.

Conform informaţiilor de la US Center for Disease Control (CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/, se recomandă ca persoanele ȋn vârstă sau cu afecţiuni medicale pre-existente, fiind cele mai vulnerabile ȋn caz de contaminare cu coronavirus, să evite expunerea in public, ȋn magazine, săli de adunare de orice fel, autobuze, trenuri, etc.

De asemenea, CDC recomandă izolarea voluntară la domiciliu, pentru orice alte persoane, aparent perfect sanatoase, dupa un presupus contact cu alte persoane posibil contaminate. Dupa contactarea medicului de familie pentru stabilirea unui plan de actiune personalizat, daca va aflati in imposibilitatea de a va parasi domiciliul si aveti nevoie de ajutor cu obtinerea unor lucruri din afara, va rugam cititi mesajul de mai jos.

Nu uitați că pentru prevenirea contaminării cu virus, igiena mâinilor si a feței este foarte importantă. În caz că suspectați că ați luat contact cu persoane contaminate, contactați medicul sau 211 https://www.211info.org/corona-virus ori, in caz de urgență, sunati la 911.

Numai bine și multă sănatate tuturor!

Amȃnat pentru vremuri mai bune
