Romania International Children's Foundation (RICF) is UK registered charity no. 1063235. It was set up in 1997 in response to the need.
Since 1999 RICF has been working in close partnership with the Romanian registered foundation Fundatia Internationala pentru Copii, Romania (FICR), which means Romania International Children's Foundation in Romanian. FICR is governed by an international board of directors, which employs a team of dedicated Romanian staff under the leadership of General Director, Ovidiu Ferent, to carry out all the work on the ground with disadvantaged children and families in Romania.
Our vision is to see abandoned and orphaned children living in families and to reduce child abandonment.
Our projects are designed to prevent child abandonment and to support children who have been orphaned or abandoned through family reunification or family placement with a foster family.
RICF is governed by Christian principles, and has six core values. Two of the three trustees governing the UK charity RICF also serve on the international Board of Directors for FICR.
