"As a mother I'm proud to support Mothers4children - a groundbreaking fundraising initiative to aid children in trouble. I'm inspired by the idea of women from different worlds channelling energy as a powerful force for good!"
"I believe Mothers4Children will grow and grow and become a wonderful platform for change that everyone will recognise with love at its heart."
"There is a kind of universal understanding between mothers because your own child's welfare is paramount and as an extension of that, the welfare of all children, will always be a priority."
"Motherhood has been the highlight of my life. I think it made me a better person because being a woman in business can make you quite hard."
"Becoming a mother is the best thing that has happened to me so anything I can do to help Mothers4children and bring awareness to those children in need I am happy to do."
"I am proud to be a part of Mothers4Children so we can work together to give all children the best start in life possible"
"Everything changes when you become a mother, nothing remains the same. My children are the best thing that ever happened to me and i believe every child has the right to feel safe and loved and enjoy the brightest future possible."
"Love is what feeds our souls, I can't imagine my childhood without it. Food may be the most basic need, but love is the most basic right. Without it how can an any child flourish? Love and kindness will change their lives and our future, there is hope and we can all make a difference"
Yasmin Le Bon
"Mothers4Children is an inspiring idea - I am happy to be included, as a mother lucky enough to have healthy, happy children - to help raise awareness and funds for children who are less fortunate than my own."
We Support > Romanian Relief
Romanian Relief's mission is to prevent abandonment and the institutionalization of children and adults. For the past decade, they have been taking decisive action to protect and care for some of Romania’s most vulnerable kids and teenagers. They believe that every child in Romania has a right to free health care, education, care and support. These four key rights underpin the ethos and the team behind Romanian Relief.
The UN estimates that up to 8 million children around the world are living in institutions, the actual number is likely to be far higher. Children in institutional care are vulnerable to untold harm and risks of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. This leaves each child exposed to a system that can facilitate a vicious cycle of long-term damage and mental health problems. At least 4 out of 5 children in institutions have one or both parents alive.
Romanian Relief’s longest ongoing project involves their two Safe Homes. These were established in 2005 and provide 2 family homes for 12 abandoned children with special needs. Their main aim and vision for these homes is to provide each child with a stable family and rehabilitate them from the psychological damage they have suffered from being institutionalized.

Family & Individual Care
It is important to focus on the family as well as the individual, for change to be sustainable. Therefore, Romanian Relief have created an array of programs dedicated to supporting and preventing issues to break the cycle.
Free Health Care
Romanian Relief's medical clinic is on the outskirts of a large Roma community in a town called Tinca. In Tinca and surrounding villages there are around 3,000 registered and an estimated 1,500 unregistered Roma.
“Having witnessed firsthand the horrors of institutional care, I needed to find a solution to the problems of these children’s lives. Then I met the charity Romanian Relief, seeing the difference between their set up and others I had witnessed is so vast. Seeing the improvement in the children under their care is enough to bring hope and joy to anyone. I truly think that Romanian Relief is a model charity through which lives can be improved beyond measure”
