Nobody's Child: Romanian Angel Appeal is a charity album released in 1990 to benefit Romanian orphans, under the auspices of the Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation. Artists donating tracks include the Traveling Wilburys, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon and George Harrison, Eric Clapton, Duane Eddy, Van Morrison, Guns N' Roses, Ringo Starr, and Elton John. All songs were previously unreleased, and "Nobody's Child" (backed with "This Week") and "With a Little Help from my Friends" were released as singles.

The project was organized by Olivia Harrison, who created the Romanian Angel Appeal Foundation with the other wives of The Beatles (Barbara Bach, Yoko Ono and Linda McCartney) in April 1990.[2]
