"We constantly appreciate the efforts of the “Ana and the Children” Association, in their mission to help the kids in need. Every child deserves a chance at a better future and, through our partnership, we try to bring more hope and joy into the lives of the little ones.

We are dedicated to creating a more sustainable future and proud to support organizations such as the “Ana and the Children” Association,” said Cristina Iacob, Marketing & CSR Manager, Genesis Property.
The company supports 10 children from the association, throughout 2023, as part of the "take care of a child" campaign, covering monthly expenses for basic needs. The program started in 2015, with a number of 20 children from the Ana and the Children Day Center – Bucharest. This year, the initiative expands to 200 children who need help every day.
"We thank our partners at Genesis Property, actively involved in our projects aimed at creating a better life for children. We have a common vision and we all realize how important the little ones are and how much the support matters to them. Together, we can create lasting change and a brighter future for the children in our care,” added Mihaela Voivozeanu, President, “Ana and the Children” Association.
Genesis Property volunteers have also rehabilitated the Community Center in Urlați, Prahova, which benefits not only the over 50 children who attend it daily but also the micro-community formed around it. Several improvements were made during this action, such as the pouring of three concrete platforms and the distribution of 26 tons of gravel in the yard. Additionally, a gazebo and a shed were refurbished, and several pieces of furniture and exterior décor were painted.
Yesterday, on May 30th, 35 of the little ones had a special day inside West Gate, with activities and performances dedicated to them, lots of surprises and an atmosphere meant to ensure the joy they deserve around Children's Day.
