Here come the boxes

After a road journey of 1600 miles, a consignment of Christmas presents very kindly donated to FARA shops has now been unloaded by St Raphael's residents in Popesti, Bucharest. Later, blankets made by the children from St John's Primary School in Staffordshire, along with more gift boxes, will be forwarded to Suceava in Romania's north-east.

Look out for more news coverage of this seasonal project. It's really heart-warming to know that at a time of year when purses are already stretched FARA's supporters are still ready to donate further funds to make our residents' Christmases really special.
