This is the first major social project of community interest in which FAN Courier, the leader of the local courier industry for over 10 years, is actively involved. The FAN Courier Foundation, in partnership with the largest local courier company, founded by Felix Patrascanu, Adrian Mihai and Neculai Mihai, started its official activity and wants to get actively involved in social-economic community projects of national interest.

The main directions of interest and action for the foundation aim at enhancing the living standards of Romanians, increasing the access to education of children and young people from disadvantaged families and to improve level of health of Romanians with the help of sport.

"Ursita project is part of a programme that will bring light into the homes of over 160 people, of which 100 are children," said Magda Cristescu, executive director of the FAN Courier foundation. "Together with Free Miorita, we will install solar panels in 25 homes from disadvantaged localities located in the counties of Botosani, Teleorman, Iasi, Hunedoara, Vaslui, Brasov, Bistrita-Nasaud, Salaj."

Adrian Mihai, one of FAN Courier's founders and shareholders, said that this project was a natural step in the life of the company, now counting over 5,500 employees: "For more than 20 years, we have travelled through Romania, interacting with hundreds of thousands of people every year, observing their needs, seeing a society divided primarily by differences in living standards, access to public utilities," he added. "In the digital revolution, there are still tens of thousands of households in Romania that do not have electricity, which is a major handicap in their social and economic development. These people are denied a right and the chance for a better life, which is a social inequity. We think this is the way we can do more for society. It′s a small step but it′s just the first."

The FAN Courier Foundation intends to be self-financed, by attracting funds from external sources, not as an extension of FAN Courier company. They are in talks with several companies, potential project supporters who want to have a contribution for Romania's social development.
