FAST UK

Andrew Henderson, a member of Weybourne Community Church for over 10 years, is chairman of FAST UK.

FAST UK is a UK charity that supports work to eliminate poverty, deprivation and discrimination in Brasov county and Reghin, Romania.

FAST UK is inspired by the work of FAST Romania and  its partners Community Aid Network in Brasov county, and Pastor Attila Toth in Reghin.

FAST UK works primarily with destitute families within the marginalised Rroma communities

FAST UK supports projects that promote a route to self-sufficiency through education & improvement in living conditions for needy families

 “Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for life”

This emphasis on help that promotes self-sufficiency, echoes the Christian principles and faith that underpin the work of FAST


THE WORK OF FAST CHARITY ROMANIA - run by Daniel Hristea

This was a home for eight people

The shack above housed a family of 8.  It was cold and wet.  The family have now been moved into a better home, below, which is well built, dry and very warm.

A better home - dry and warm

All this boy needs is some clothes

The little boy above had to share all his clothes with three other siblings.  They had no warm clothes and only one pair of shoes.  The family were given sufficient clothes for all and the sad face now has a smile.
