Therapy Centre Appeal
We are appealing for donations to help us open a NEW Therapy Centre in Bucharest.
FARA Charity provides a free lifeline to marginalized families at two successful Therapy Centres in the rural north of Romania, and these have become centres of excellence. We plan to replicate this vital work and reach more children with a NEW centre in Bucharest.
Our therapy centres provide:
- Specialist education
- Speech and sensory therapy
- Art therapy
- Family guidance
- Support in the home
- Communication with local doctors and authorities
DONATE NOW - Help us reach our £15,000 TARGET!
With your help FARA Charity provides the potential to transform children’s futures.
In Romania children with disabilities are unable to access mainstream education. FARA Charity offers a lifeline to families who would be isolated and unable to access support for their children and themselves without the care given at the therapy centres. Our therapy centres work with families to develop the children’s abilities and support them with their care and development so many are able to attend main stream kindergarten and school. FARA Charity works with schools to ensure understanding and support continues for the children and they can go on to lead a fulfilled life.
Our services and therapies are adapted to each child's needs and can include: group activities, one-to-one educational activities, support for children with autism, socialising, art therapy, sensory therapy, speech therapy, physiotherapy and family guidance support.
FARA Charity is one of very few organisations in Romania to offer therapeutic services for those who don’t have the means to pay for private or state care. All activities are carried out in close collaboration with the social services and local government but we only receive 4.3% of the funding for these programmes from the state. There is a long waiting list for those who require our help. We need more funds to bring these services to many more children.
