TOUCHED ROMANIA'S FOUNDER

 

    In the mid-1990s, Raegan Glugosh, a Registered Nurse licensed in the State of California, discovered sections of newborn babies abandoned in maternity hospitals in Bucharest. Raegan, along with a multi-cultural team, began organizing a foster care program to place abandoned babies with loving families. Then, in 2005, as the rate of child abandonemnt continuted to rise, a prevention home for pregnant mothers in distress was opened.

 

    The ministry of Touched Romania helps provide hope and healing to at-risk, vulneralbe women and their children. Most recently, the ministry expanded to include a transition and aftercare community program, in a continued effort to support and disciple women as they integrate back into society.
