Hospices of Hope
Who we are
Hospices of Hope is the leading palliative care charity in South East Europe and has pioneered services for children and adults with terminal and life-limiting illnesses for 30 years.
We believe that everyone deserves the best possible care at the end of life. But in developing countries like Romania, Serbia, Albania and Moldova many patients still die in pain, without being offered any physical, spiritual or emotional comfort. Struggling healthcare systems offer little or nothing in the way of hospice care. Every year more than 70% of adults and children diagnosed with cancer in Romania, will experience unrelieved pain.
We have cared for over 40,000 patients and trained over 20,000 medical professionals. The first in-patient hospice opened in the city of Brasov, Romania, in 2002 and a new hospice in Bucharest for patients with advanced cancer was completed in September 2014.
