The Romanian-American Freedom Alliance is a non-profit organization established in Colorado in 1990 after the collapse of the Communist regime in Romania. Its mission is both humanitarian and educational. RAFA’s principal goal is to help children and needy families in Romania, as well as to provide medical supplies and equipment to Romanian hospitals. An annual Romanian Festival in downtown Boulder raises the funds for these efforts. In addition, the festival showcases various aspects of Romanian culture to the local population through folk dances, ethnic foods and artifacts.
