Helga Nürnberger

Helga Nürnberger, President of Restore, was born in Germany, yet has lived and served in Romania since 1991. Her focus is on families, children in need and with Roma communities. For many years she has been involved in different projects offering help and assistance to children and youth in the Transylvanian area.

Ministering to people, she realized that many families live with little or no education and finances. They are unable to help their own children climb out of poverty, integrate into society and to develop their full potential. In the last 14 years, Helga and her coworkers faced challenges of providing a more effective team and framework, where they could assist disadvantaged people from rural Roma communities, thus, Restore Association was founded.  Restore has become not only a workplace but of friendship and fellowship as well.

We are always in need of and welcome more volunteers short term and long term.
