Romania International Children's Foundation (RICF) is UK registered charity no. 1063235. We exist to reduce child abandonment and to offer abandoned or orphaned Romanian children the chance to live in a loving family.
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.
RICF is governed by Christian principles, and has six core values. Two of our three trustees also serve on the international Board of Directors for FICR.
