Review for Romanian Children's Relief, Reston, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

No charity could have more dedicated and competent direction than Mike Carroll and Eileen McHenry who, together, built this organization from its inception after personally experiencing the dire needs of the children they serve. I met Eileen in Romania in1990 where we were both adopting our daughters, and was an early volunteer when Mike, who had recently returned from writing a story on the horrific conditions in Romanian orphanages, invited a small group of people to his living room to brainstorm what we could do to help. After twenty-two years, RCR has grown into an organization that has served 2000 children with 500 volunteers. And even more impressive, the organization has developed a staff in Romania who deliver extraordinary services with equally great dedication. I have personally witnessed the excellence of RCR"s programs and continue to be inspired by the work of our staff on both sides of the Atlantic.
