Kindness this Christmas
The FARA Christmas Appeal launches today!
Give the gift of kindness... support a vulnerable child this Christmas
Children living in poverty are more at risk of
- being separated from their family
- entering public care
- remaining poor in their adult life due to inequalities of opportunity*
4 out of 10 Romanian children are poor, the highest number in Europe
This Christmas we are thanking our donors for their kind giving, with your continued support FARA directly impacts the lives of poor and disadvantaged children in Romania. FARA’s social projects tackle the root causes of poverty. In our mission to transform the lives of marginalized children we strive to raise children up and out of poverty.
All of FARA’s children receive Christmas presents thanks to our donors.
Donate to help FARA provide a brighter Christmas for children and young people at risk.

A Christmas Message from FARA’s Founder
Thank you all once again for your generous support in helping us tackle poverty and injustice in one of the poorest countries in Europe. In Romania nearly half of all children live under the poverty line, FARA is dedicated to reaching out to the most vulnerable and excluded in society. With your amazing help we have extended our Tackling Poverty
Through Education programme, giving a daily hot meal and education support in six primary schools and kindergartens, in rural Romania, greatly improving school attendance. In 2019 we also developed our three Therapy Centres for children with disabilities, where more than 200 children from poor families attended our centres daily - a lifeline for families. These are just two of our social projects funded almost entirely from our generous supporters in the UK.
FARA is founded on Christian, human values of love, justice, dignity and respect, with family and friendship at the heart of our work. We value each and every person, giving a sense of meaning and purpose to their lives.
Please join us to help many more children, young people and families in the coming year.
May the peace and joy of Christmas be with you today and always.
Founder and Chair of FARA Charity
