After a trip in the summer of 1999, there was a great desire to do something for children with disabilities. In the Netherlands the Sion-International foundation was started. In december 1999 the foundation bought a building and adapted it for the new task. With the input of Dirk-Bart and Marja Houweling send through ECM Netherlands as missionaries, in september 2000 the daycare centre was opened officially.
The school for special education provided four salaries. In cooperation with them special programs were started for the children.


There are three groups of eight children with a group leader and an assistant in each group. The leadership of Casa Luminii is in the hands of the Romanians.

In the past few years we also had several short termers in the project. Orthopedagogen, a physiotherapist and a music therapist.
