Little Johns HouseThe History

Little John's House was purchased in 1993 to provide a secure home for Ionut Balan (Little John), a Romanian child suffering from hydrocephalus, who had earlier been invited to Devon to receive expert surgical/medical treatment, intensive physiotherapy, professional nursing and a great deal of loving care. His only other home in Romania would have been a State "Home for Irrecuperables", where the residents received the minimum of food and clothing and where medicine was almost non-existent.
Ionut (in the photo below) was an inspiration to everyone who met him. Sadly he died of a heart attack in 1997 but the memory of him lives on to provide loving care for our 6 current children.

The Present

Costica, Iulia, Andrada, Laur, Anamaria and Vlad now live happily in the care of employed Romanian helpers, and supervised by Mags and Liviu Zaharia. Find out more about each child by clicking on the 'Children and Home' link.

Little John's House is not just a home for 6 children, but reaches out to touch the lives of many other children with special needs and disadvantaged children living in other care homes, hospitals and family homes in the local area.
