Frequently Asked Questions

1.

Housing

We will provide you with accommodation in shared student housing for the duration of your stay.

2.

Food

Student housing is self-catering, all students and volunteers staying there are responsible for purchasing and preparing their own food. We suggest a budget of around 300 Euros per month for food, accommodation and other necessities. We now have a supermarket in the village which stocks most food and toiletries.

3.

Currency

The Romanian currency is called Leu. It’s possible to change Sterling or Euros in Arad (not Siria), but you must ensure all notes are clean, intact and unmarked.   Current exchange rates can be found online.

4.

Credit Cards

Credit and debit cards (Mastercard, Visa, etc.) are good if you want to take cash out, and it is possible to pay by card, in some shops in Arad and here in the village of Șiria.   There is a small charge each time you take money out depending on your bank. Ask in advance at your home branch. There are two cash points in Șiria.

5.

Water

Most of our team choose to drink the water in Arad, Șiria, and Taut, but it is recommended that people bring a bottle to fill when out and about in the community. Water pressure in the mains system goes off a lot here, especially in the summer months. This can affect showers, toilets, laundry, and drinking water.

6.

Electricity

Plug sockets are the 2 pin European type.  Adapters are necessary for UK or American plugs.

7.

Language

Romanian. Some Romanians speak some English. The organization is English speaking but we encourage our volunteers to learn basic Romanian.

8.

Climate

In the summer it’s very warm (30 to 40C) bring plenty of sunblock and mosquito repellent. However at night, it can become much cooler. The winter can be very cold (-20 to -30C) so bring plenty of warm clothes and thermals.
