FARA Charity UK was founded in 1991 by Jane Nicholson, after she visited Romania to see first hand the cruelty inflicted within state run orphanages during the dictatorship of Nicolae Ceaușescu. For the past 3 decades, FARA has successfully provided a lifeline to over 10,000 beneficiaries and has expanded its reach over the years from one home for rescued children, to community-based programmes supporting families to stay together, building a stronger future for Romania.

FARA is one of the largest and most experienced NGO care providers in Romania, reaching out to the poor, the marginalised and most discriminated in society.

But it goes beyond just being a care provider. At FARA, family and friendships are at the heart of everything we do and our work is truly life changing for many families living in abject poverty.

Our mission is to build communities and families, to love and serve them, fulfilling lives, rebuilding futures, and spreading hope.



FARA has created successful models of care delivering secure lives for those who were previously denied them, whether through poverty, social exclusion or disability.
