A proud moment for our little charity






We are proud to announce that Children in Distress, your charity; that has, in the past, helped thousands of children and young adults with special needs, is with your help, opening a new and dedicated family-style children’s hospice near Bucharest.

The new hospice,” Casa Maria”, which is located in Popești Leordeni, south of Bucharest, will be officially opened on Thursday by Princess Maria of Romania, the charity’s royal patron who will cut the ribbon.

Casa Maria will offer personal care and medical assistance, permanent supervision, daily specialist nutrition, physical rehabilitation, and recreational and cultural activities for children living there.

For over 30 years our work in Romania has grown. Our initial focus of caring for children with HIV/AIDS has evolved into provision of respite, palliative and end- of-life care, and we have developed some of the best-trained and most experienced paediatric nurses in Romania.
