Frantz Johansen and his wife, Berit S.Johansen, started this work after meeting the many children living in the sewage pipes in Bucharest in 1991.
Outreach is about building relationships and trust, before you can start to help. In the beginning most of the work was on the streets, down in the sewage pipes and in the slum. You will also find us there today, with the same goal of building relationships and trust.
