Generous friends donate birthdays to FARA

Everyone loves a birthday, including that warm feeling which comes with opening gifts from friends and relations. But recently two friends of FARA gave all this up and urged friends to donate the amount they would have spent on a gift.

Mona Turcitu and Adelina Nartea are both Romanians who have settled in the UK. Thanks to Mona’s generosity, children with disabilities can now enjoy the safety of car seats when they travel by minibus to FARA’s therapy centres.

Inspired by her friend Mona, Adelina has decided to help fund new play equipment at St Gabriel’s family home.

FARA hugely appreciates this form of direct support for its programmes, which can easily be organised through the JustGiving website.
