We don't do miracles, but it's surprising what therapy can do


St Nicholas’ Child Development and Therapy Centre in Bucharest offers children born with disabilities, or less abled by accident or infection and abandoned as beyond help, a range of intensive therapies delivered by, arguably, the best trained occupational, play, physio and speech therapists in Romania today. Since it opened, their work has significantly changed children’s lives. As part of a specialised therapy programme, your gift will offer a child a week of multi-therapy sessions, which may offer them the chance to walk, talk and lead a more independent life. St Nicholas’ and its philosophy of treatment has been so successful that Copii in Dificultate will shortly extend the service to Pitesti.

Speech and Language session


For any child, learning to communicate is key to their development but for a child of disability it is not just about learning to say "hello", it’s about swallowing, closing their mouth and the use of face muscles, all of which improves communication and leads on to self-feeding. Why not sponsor a speech and language session and help them on their way?

Overnight stay for therapy


St Nicholas’ Child Development Centre in Bucharest is so successful that families are travelling for 6-8 hours at a time to get the therapy that will make a difference which is not available in their local county. The redevelopment plan includes a room for overnight stays. For many of the parents their bus fare will stretch their budget to the limit. Why not sponsor a night to allow a child to have 2 days of therapy?
