It all began in China…

Or was it Romania?

The initial idea was discussed whilst Peter Finnegan and Paul Harris were in China, walking along the Great Wall in aid of Acorns Childrens Hospice.  However, the idea really took shape whilst Peter and Paul were in Romania in 2003 and one morning, over breakfast, Peter explained his vision to Paul who sketched out a logo and made some notes in his diary.  Paul still has the diary (image on the left) which shows that Peter had a vision to heal the world from some of its pain, but to do it locally, and in small ways.

So the “Healing Ways Foundation” was borne over bread and jam in a tiny kitchen in an apartment in Chitilla, a run down suburb of Bucharest, Romanina.  It certainly had humble beginnings…
