About us

FARA Foundation is a registered charity in the UK and Romania, founded in 1991 to support the poorest and most vulnerable children and young people in Romania.

Jane Nicholson founded the charity to help the children she saw suffering a life of neglect and abuse in Romania’s notorious state institutions. The word fara means “without” in Romanian and the charity was created to provide a family to those without.

Collaborating across all sections of society and cultivating relationships and partnerships, FARA Charity is today one of the largest care providers in Romania. FARA Charity strives to build a just society serving the common good with values based on Christian roots, welcoming people of all faiths and none.

FARA Charity cares for Romania’s poorest families, helping to heal abuse and trauma amongst marginalized and discriminated children and adults. Giving security and love to those who need it most – fulfilling lives, rebuilding futures, spreading hope.
