Post J.K.Rowling in talks with Romanian first lady (UPDATED)

J.K.Rowling, through her charity the Children's High Level group, is meeting with the first lady of Romania, Ioana Tariceanu, today at ten Downing Street to further promote the cause of poorly treated orphans. While Gordon Brown will speak with the prime minister, J.K.Rowling, along with Sarah Brown, will speak with his wife.

Jo first got involved after seeing pictures of children kept in cages, mostly orphans and those with mental and/or physical problems. The aim for today is to tackle healthcare issues and prevent babies from being abandoned at hospitals.

Quote:
A Downing Street insider said: “This is an issue which Sarah and JK are passionate about.

“They’ve been grateful for the willingness of the Romanian government to engage in serious discussion about it.”
Past stories about Jo's involvement with this charity can be found below;

JKR highlights issues

UPDATE
: A picture of Jo at ten Downing Street has been included in this report.



Quote:
The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown commented: "I am delighted that this meeting has taken place today. Although there is still work to be done, Romania is helping to show the way on how to tackle the challenges faced by children with disabilities. Britain and Romania will continue to work together in this important area."

That's nice to hear. Of course, whenever she goes to Romania, I'm out of the country <.<

Not that it would've made any difference, lol.

I hope their discussions go smoothly.
