Paul Davies

May 1991 – first visit to Romania on an aid trip with local Christian care.

Took part in ‘Aid Trips’ once every year to various locations in Romania.

In 1994 Paul heard of ‘Children in Distress’, a charity aimed at helping abandoned children suffering from AIDS. At the time Paul was a S.E.N. teacher and every summer he went out to help this charity and stayed for 3-4 weeks on each occasion.

In 1997, after a particularly bad summer, when a child very close to Paul died, he decided that he was being led to make a permanent commitment. He resigned from his job, sold his house and moved to Cernavoda to work in an AIDS hospice for ‘Children in Distress’.

Since July 1998 he has worked as Team Leader and Project Director at St. Thomas’ Slobozia, a hospice caring for twelve children with HIV and varying special needs. At that time a community project for thirty families was established, and is still flourishing under the management of a good friend, Noreen O’Gorman.

Paul left ‘Children in Distress’ in January 2000 and ‘Everyone’s Child Romania’ was formed in March 2000, committed to caring for children and young adults with HIV/AIDS, in a close collaboration with Baylor Black Sea Foundation and the Infectious Diseases Hospital in Constanta.
