This charity was set up specifically to support families in Romania who have children infected with HIV/AIDS. The problem of HIV/AIDS-infected children is very widespread in Romania. In the late 1990s, Romania had over 50% of European paediatric AIDS cases. Many of these children have since died, while the survivors among them are now in their early twenties. We are also now caring for 24 cases of recently infected HIV-positive children under 12 years of age.
Everyone’s Child – Romania is an organisation founded on the Christian belief that these children are everyone’s responsibility. The organisation has been set up and is being run by Christians (as well as non-Christian friends) from various churches in Wales and the U.K.
There are many ways to support this work, but if being part of this vital foundation is what God is asking you to do, then please contact us as soon as possible for a standing order mandate form.

You can now easily donate online to ECR through the website GoFundMe.com.

LATEST NEWS: EARLY SUMMER UPDATE
I thought I would share with you one of our ‘success stories’. I dislike using that term because nothing is set-in-stone in our line of work. When you are working with young adults this work can be unpredictable, when you work with children you learn not have too many high expectations, and just delight in the good times when they turn up.
So I was delighted when I received the latest Small Group Therapy,(SGT), report from our Mihaela. SGT is when Mihaela gets a group of our younger children together for a couple of days to discuss important issues…can range from difficulties at school to tantrums at home. Mihaela engages the help of one of the mothers to share the load, and to have a better insight into the difficulties of being a mother to a girl facing puberty pretty soon.
ECR’s Paul Davies is the beating heart of the charity over in Romania. He and his small team are the boots on the ground working with the families who need them in the poorest areas of the country. Every few months Paul makes the trip back to Wales in order to update supporters of the charity with how things are going and to introduce the charity to new supporters.
This video was filmed in Dec 2015 as Paul addressed a church in Blackwood, South Wales.
