Rob and Paul Forkan

Gandys has been created by Brothers Rob and Paul Forkan, who had a bohemian upbringing, travelling and volunteering all over the World.  The brothers wanted to create something unique, driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami.

Rob and Paul founded Gandys with the vision to fund their charitable foundation: ‘Orphans for Orphans’ supporting children in need and to create a legacy in their parents name.

The brothers are dedicated to trying to create a better future for fellow Orphans as it was the children of Sri Lanka that helped the brothers and their younger siblings survive and escape. Gandys has built its very own children’s Home in Sri Lanka, which marked the 10 year anniversary of the Tsunami.  With various homes now funded in Sri Lanka and India, the brothers are hoping more people will join them in their journey to create a better future for those less fortunate.
