“Dăruiește Aripi” is a non-profit organization, based in Constanta, founded in 2013 and born out of a desire to bring together all those who have the energy, will and power to help bring to life charitable projects pertaining to the medical and educational domains.
“We bring back hope to those who’ve lost it. We help broken wings fly again. We need the power of the many to achieve more. The association welcomes anyone who wants to lend a helping hand, whether they be sponsors or volunteers. “Dăruiește Aripi” belongs to them all and we would like to share this dream with as many of them as possible.” – Alina Pătrăhău, “Dăruiește Aripi” founder.
Our symbol, the humming bird, is the only bird that can fly on any axis and hover in midair. Despite its tiny body, the hummingbird’s heart is larger than other birds’. That’s a heart with a strong beat, 80 times stronger than a human’s. Hummingbirds inspire us to seek within ourselves the power to celebrate each day of our lives and the desire to help and be the wind beneath others’ wings.
