Jane Nicholson MBE

FARA Founder & Chairman

FARA was born in 1991, 25 years ago when a group of volunteers travelled to Romania to help alleviate the suffering of Romania’s neglected and unloved children abandoned into state orphanages.

Jane had the vision to spread the unconditional love of God to these children. Her inspiration continues to guide the work of FARA today.

Jane is a trained nurse and has extensive experience in the charity sector. She was chair of Sue Ryder, serving on the Trustee board for many years, commissioning health care services for the sick and disabled both in the UK and the Balkan States.

She has been a member of the European Parliament committee (Eurochild) representing FARA and other NGO’s in Romania on issues of social justice.

Jane was awarded the MBE in 2013 for her work in Romania.
