FARA Charity fulfils its mission in Romania with funds raised predominantly in the UK, we advocate towards the Romanian government to support its people and help fund our work and to change policies to make a real impact of the lives of its citizens.
FARA Foundation is a registered Charity in the UK founded in 1991. It is the partner organisation of Fundatia FARA, a non-profit, non-governmental organisation in Romania. FARA was founded to create ‘a family for those without’, fara meaning without in Romanian. The charity was founded to transform the lives of children suffering neglect and abuse, abandoned in Romania’s notorious state institutions. FARA today cares for the most vulnerable social groups facing extreme poverty, addressing exclusion and breaking the cycle of poverty.
There is so much to be thankful for over the last 32 years of FARA. This has never been more evident than during the Coronavirus pandemic, and the ongoing war in Ukraine, which have both brought untold suffering to many millions of people. In FARA, this crisis has brought out the best of humanity in numerous acts of kindness, caring and compassion.
Over 30 years FARA charity has cared for over 10,000 beneficiaries in three regions of Romania. Our services include care for vulnerable children and adults with learning disabilities, youth at risk and community-based programmes tackling poverty through education, fulfilling lives, rebuilding futures and spreading hope.
I would like to thank each one of our dedicated staff and volunteers in Romania, and our amazing children and young people for their trust. This is only achieved by in country fundraising in Romania and our generous UK donors, as well as our wonderful charity shops in the UK. There is still so much to do and your generosity can help to bring lasting change and a brighter future.
Please continue to help us expand our reach in the next 30 years.
Jane Nicholson, Founder of FARA Charity
