Independent life and work skills for institutionalised and at-risk youth
In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic hit and impacted both the way services could be delivered by Fundatia FARA, the UK charity’s partner organisation in Romania, and how funds could be raised in the UK. All international travel was stopped, movement across both Romania and the UK was restricted and the UK charity shops were closed.
Both the UK and Romanian organisations followed their Government’s guidelines and put in place a response to the pandemic that would protect beneficiaries and staff whilst maintaining a necessary level of care.
The UK board were informed of the impact on services in Romania and the response made to continue delivering support and care to the beneficiaries.
