Samuel Centre celebrates eight successful years

On 5 March FARA’s Samuel Centre in Bucharest celebrated its eighth birthday. This was a wonderful opportunity for the children to enjoy some special activities. First they made a colourful paper birthday cake complete with candle. Then, encouraged by the results, they made a lovely bouquet of paper flowers. They presented this to members of staff as a special ‘thank you’ for all their patience and encouragement in teaching them to read and write.

Over its eight years the Samuel Centre has helped over 130 children with special needs, half of whom have been able to move on to school or kindergarten. It currently provides therapy – including art therapy – for 41 children.
