Caminul Felix's business intention is to meet the physical, spiritual, emotional and social needs of abandoned and orphaned children in the world in a loving family environment. Caminul Felix is an expression of the love and care that parents, leaders and social workers live out. The activity is also an expression of the belief in God's care that provides a healing environment and restoration for all children.

What does Caminul Felix do?
Caminul Felix, also known as Felix Family Villages, began operations in 1990 in Romania. Linda and Lars Hörnberg lived in Oradea and when they saw the need among the children who had been displaced by society, the first family was formed. Five children without parents moved into what became Felixbyarna's first family. A young couple decided to become the new parents in their children's lives - for life. They created a new family, a real family. With it, the first Felix family had been formed. Since the start in 1990, more than 500 children have grown up on Caminul Felix.

Caminul Felix today
During the more than 30 years that Caminul Felix has existed, a lot has happened. Today there are two children's villages in Oradea, Romania and one in Surat Thani in Thailand. In Romania, the families are divided into two children's villages, each with six and eight houses respectively. In Thailand there are ten houses. This children's village was built 10 years ago as a response to the children who became orphans when their parents were affected by AIDS / HIV and were no longer in the vicinity of the children. In total, Caminul Felix is responsible for about 240 children, distributed among the three children's villages. In addition to the children's villages in Romania, there are many activities that contribute to the development of children and young adults, including a large and extensive farm with its own milk production, a sewing studio, a carpentry workshop, to name a few. This creates jobs and helps young adults into working life.
