Zody is a combination of the Greek name Zoe and the Irish name Cody. These names stand for 'life'and 'help.' As such Zody is helping people in their lives and helping them to find Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.

Our first and foremost mission is spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Next to that we focus on raising up disciples, the future missionaries, and we also help practical, such as with cloths, food and teaching different skills.

We work in Pata-Rât (also known as Dallas), Cantonolui and Coastei, three Roma/gypsy ghettos at the edge of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, next to the garbage dump or land fill. We work (especially) with children and teenagers and weekly around 250 children/teenagers attend our programs. At the moment we run more then ten different programs, led by different volunteers.

Our vision is by 2020 to reach out with the teenagers from the ghettos to other Roma/gypsies ghettos in and around Cluj-Napoca. Teenagers from a place that society says it is impossible to bring a change will be reaching out with the message of Hope of Jesus Christ. This is the heart of God, Who makes the impossible possible.
