Anca’s Knee Operation
We did it
On 23rd August 2018 we successfully raised £120 with 3 supporters in 56 days

The money will go to repay the cost of 16 yr old Anca’s 2nd knee operation and rehabilitation.

by Jeremy Harfield in Bournemouth, England, United Kingdom

Anca (16) is the adopted daughter of Nikki and Mihai Bulc and lives in Caminul Felix, Nr Oradea Romania.

There are 13 in the family at the moment as Nikki and Mihai are foster parents and have fostered many orphaned, neglected and underprivileged children over the years.

Please see

Mihai has selflessly worked for many years organising and managing local orphananed and underprivileged children to be part of a football academy.

Anca is a very talented 16 yr old girl who has a huge passion for football, and has been selected last year to be a part of the under 15’s Romanian women’s team which is a huge achievement indeed.

Unfortunately after a knee injury the MRI results showed a broken Anterior Cross Ligament, the surgery was successful and the long road to recovery started.

Fortunately Mihai is a qualified Physio so after 5 months she was back playing what she loves.

Everything was going well until the other knee collapsed, same specialist again, same MRI results.

As I type this Anca is having her operation as there was a cancellation, Mihai has been texting me from her bedside, everything went as planned and she’ll be there for the next 2 days.

With any knee operation it’s very important that the patient is up and starting rehabilitation, again luckily her Father knows exactly how this works with the previous knee.

Mihai has asked for financial help as he is using most of his savings for the 2 operations.

So please give as little or as much as you can and il update you on her progress and let’s hope she’ll be back playing what she loves so much....Football!!

Thankyou very much!
