Sunshine Foundation Romania is a recognised charity that seeks to improve the lives and living conditions of abandoned children from oppressive and poorly managed orphanages.
Sunshine is a very small, but highly effective charity. We have built two houses and two supported living apartments for children and young people rescued from the orphanages in Brasov County in Transylvania. We also support several families in outlying villages which do not have the means in which to support themselves.
The children in the Sunshine homes have physical, emotional, behavioural and learning difficulties and we provide them with appropriate healthcare and education. We ensure that the children get to school each day, something which they are not entitled to. It is something which each and every child loves.
Sunshine also runs a supported living programme for the transition to adulthood for our children that have now reached the age, but not the ability, to leave care. These vulnerable young adults will still require support and training to enable them to become independent adults.
