An unexpected visit from CID’s extended family of care brings joy to Saint Andrew’s

On Friday, May 25, the children and staff at Saint Andrew’s enjoyed a very special visit Alisdair Barron – CID Ro’s President, the Foundation’s Executive Director Valentina Zaharia and another two supporters from Great Britain, Anne Peeling and Pauline Phillips, both sponsors of two children, Claudia and Elizeo’s.

After a detailed discussion with the Centre’s Director, Mrs. Mariana Mandreanu, on the challenges  of providing quality care services, developed activities and children’s current needs, the U.K. team went on to visit the children. Alisdair always enjoys his visit at Saint Andrews which he helped design and he is familiar with the children, knowing in depth their medical problems and diagnoses. But this time, the two kind hearted UK sponsors had the opportunity of spending quality time with their proteges and with other little ones to whom they send messages, letters and cards.

Before going to school, Claudia dropped in to say hello to this group of visitors and to exchange thoughts about her approaching summer holiday, progress at school and other plans she has for the future. She had photos taken with the guests and thanked them for their beautiful and well-thought gift. Elizeo was nicely surprised by the gift he received from the Reverend Pauline Phillips, who has been sponsoring his care since he was admitted. Moreover, she took the time to inquire of his specialized care staff about the child’s interests and health and about the other kids cared for at the Centre. It was indeed a great day spent in good company and we hope that our visitors will return, whenever their schedule allows it, as the children will always be keen to have them around.
