Peter Maffay and the Centre for Children Roades



The famous pop singer from Germany, Peter Maffay, inaugurated the Centre for Children Roades, village Bunesti, county of Brasov, through a project supported by the Romanian officials, but also by officials from Germany. The Centre operates in the former church house near the Evangelic Church. Here the children will enjoy special conditions for spending the holiday. The fact that the artist has invested in a forgotten village brings in the limelight a locality with an impressive historical past. He culturally connects the Saxons from Transylvania and their origin country, which adds value to the project.

A chance for Roades village

„Exactly 465 days ago, in this place precisely, we have laid the symbolic headstone of our project surrounded by many friends and supporters. Today, a few months later, these buildings may start the activity they were meant for. We have already hosted the first visitors, even though they had to sleep in tents. Our head-light is now up and it starts spreading out light”, declared Peter Maffay, obviously touched.
Present at the event, the Minister of Culture from Germany, Bernd Neumann, said: „There is a very strong connection between the Citadel Church and the place for children. Even though they used to be a shelter back in the old days, Peter Maffay built a shelter for the children nowadays. I am honoured to represent Germany's Federal Government to this event and I shall continue to support the restoration of the citadel-churches from Transylvania.”

Donations from the readers

We should notice that following a campaign supported by the media in Germany, 450,000 Euro have been collected from the readers, who only donated for this project.
The Mayor of village Buneşti, Mircea Pălăşan, wanted to thank Peter Maffay and the German officials for choosing Roades for this project: “I would like to thank all those who contributed to this investment and first of all to Peter Maffay, the great Romanian artist who found the time for the social project from Roades, even though his agenda is really busy. The reward for this centre is children's smile, given back by the joy of spending a vacation.”

High-level involvement

Elena Udrea, the Minister of Regional Development and Tourism, Teodor Baconschi, the Foreign Affairs Minister, Bernd Neuman, the Minister of Culture from Germany bishop Guib, the President of the County Council Brasov, Aristotel Cancescu, the Mayor of Brasov, George Scripcaru, prefect Ion Gontea, senators and deputies and artisans from the area of Rupea, who represented the Romanian and German folklore participated all in the event.
