Hospices of Hope

Hospices of Hope provide respite for children with life-limiting conditions throughout the summer months.

Where is it?

Bucharest, Romania

Brasov, Romania

What will I be doing?

You will be joining a group either on the seaside or at a holiday camp. You will be assisting in the running of the program, getting involved in teaching, playing and being with the kids and their families.

What impact would I have?

Children suffering from rare or life-limiting conditions are often completely neglected in the Romanian health care system and children experiencing trauma as a result of the death of a parent or sibling are often socially marginalised. In Romania there are….

5,000 children suffering from a life-limiting condition 8,000 family care-givers involved in the caring process 10,000 children facing the death of a parent or sibling annually.

Hospices of Hope’s Summer Trips are an opportunity for the children and their familes to be kids, to receive respite, to share stories and find comfort in each other and ultimately have a time that offers normality in their displaced world.

Who would I be working with?

Children of all ages with a variety of disabilities and their families.
