Sunshine Foundation Cheque Presentation

For the last 13 years NICVA staff and their friends have entered relay teams into the Belfast City Marathon to raise money for Sunshine Foundation Romania.

Sunshine Foundation Romania are a charity that seeks to improve the lives and living conditions of abandoned children from oppressive and poorly managed orphanages. 

This week NICVA staff (Bob, Stephen, Jenny, Denise, Sandra and Roisin) presented Marie Williams, Chair of Sunshine Foundation Romania with a cheque for £1,768 raised from completing the Belfast City Marathon relay last year. Marie expressed her sincere gratitude to all the staff and their friends for their continued support for the charity’s work and gave an update on how the project is progressing in Romania and the challenges that the charity is facing. 

Sunshine Foundation Romania is a very small, but highly effective charity. It has built two houses and two supported living apartments for children and young people rescued from the orphanages in Brasov County in Transylvania. The charity is currently working on supported employment and living projects to provide for the children and young people as they mature.  More details can be found on the Sunshine Foundation Romania website.'s picture
