“I am delighted and honored by the opportunity to be part of the team HOSPICE Casa Sperantei and to coordinate this foundation that manages to bring hope children and adults who struggle with an incurable disease. Unfortunately, in Romania approximately 160,000 people with incurable illnesses need palliative care every year, but less than 8 percent of them are receiving it at the right time. Our goal is to help change these statistics and to gather as many people as possible that are willing to help.”
HOSPICE Casa Sperantei was founded in 1992 in Brasov. The organization offers palliative care for children and adults diagnosed with incurable disease.
The NGO provides these services in its own units or at the homes of patients.
