Romania’s left behind children

There are up to 350,000 left behind children in Romania – children with parents living and working abroad – according to estimates provided by Save the Children Romania. In around 40% of cases, both parents have left to work abroad. EU migration laws allow Romanian adults to travel across Europe to find well-paid work – something that has become increasingly difficult to obtain in Romania. The children they leave behind, often living with grandparents, can suffer.
