Registered Charity Number:
'Children Come First' is the brainchild of Ken (Michael) Rose who spent some time in a Moscow clinic following a life-threatening fall from a 3-storey building during his time as a roofing contractor in the U.K. Among his other injuries, he suffered several spinal fractures and was destined for life in a wheelchair. A friend referred him to the Neurology clinic, from which he emerged on both feet determined to repay his friend for virtually saving his life! She told him of the dreadful conditions in which many of the 150,000 orphaned, sick and disadvantaged children in her home country of Moldova are obliged to live. These children would become his 'obsession' and he was determined to improve their lives in any way he could.
'Children Come First' was born.
Every Euro raised is targeted towards those who need help as we purchase all requirements from sources closest to the Home or families with whom we are liaising. This is the most effective way of minimising costs and also aiding the local economy. We try to pay our own expenses,when possible, so you can be assured that your donation will be put to good use.
Any material contributions received are either sold in our shop or
couriered directly on a regular basis to Moldova and Slovakia.
These could be the smiling faces of Moldova....with your help!
