What We Do (2019 Version)

Children in Distress was set up in the early 1990s in response to the crisis in paediatric care services exposed following the Popular Revolution that swept Romania’s communist regime from power.

Today we care for children living with the most severe disabilities, whether the result of accident, infection, genetic and neurological disorders or autism. We continue to set new standards for respite, palliative and terminal care and multiple therapies, along with education, development and training programmes.
