Forget-me-not Foundation Romania is a United Kingdom based charity (no.1091442 registered with UK Charities Commission) for the purpose of helping Romanian orphans with special needs.
The original five kids have grown up and moved on to a more specialist home with the exception of the youngest, Costi. The current young people are now aged between 12 and 18 which means there are more frequent changes due to college and university attendance. Meet some of the young people at Forget-me-not.
Our work has covered more than a decade of helping Romanian orphans by providing a home, garden, education, recuperation and pastoral care. Our goal is to teach them social skills and how to take care of their own personal needs, how to learn at school, to play together, and interpersonal communication skills.
Meet some of yesterday's and today’s children and young people at Forget-me-not.
Donations and Fundrising Events
It’s the job of our UK base to keep cash rolling in and this is done by our registered UK charity Forget-me-not Foundation Romania no.1091442, based in Horsham U.K. Whilst the principle sponsor is Novatron Scientific, further fund raising and donations are still needed to keep us going. Our founder has organised and participated in many fund raising events over the years, including marathons, Iron Man triathlon, sponsored drive to Monaco , quad-bike run and many more. Our latest fund-raiser is our short animated film , for small children, out on DVD : “Bluebelle’s Yard, the Tale of Johnny Minor”. This is produced entirely for Forget-me-not and is a 10 minute feature about old cars in a scrap yard, with theme tune sung by school children and dedicated entirely to Forget-me-not. Donate Now
Organising holidays for the Forget-me-not kids in the U.K is our next step to bring more enjoyment and experience to their lives. Learning some English too is a great advantage. We aim to invite each child over to the UK for a holiday, along with their carer. Travel costs to be paid for by Fmn. Most of the Fmn kids have never seen the sea, learned to swim, ride a bike or travelled on an airplane. Could you host a child with a Fmn carer for a week’s holiday in your home and take them out places? Please CONTACT US if you think you could help.
