Building a Brighter Future at
Where Every Child's Life is Cherished
Join Us in a Mission of Compassion
We're embarking on a heartfelt journey to establish Romania's first hospital dedicated to children's palliative care in Adunatii-Copaceni, near Bucharest. This vital project represents the final, crucial piece in providing a full circle of care for children with incurable illnesses and their families, complementing our existing services of day care, therapy, respite care, and home care, as well as summer camps for affected children.
Screen Our Inspiring Movie
"Copacul dorințelor: Amintiri din copilărie"
Is a 2022 Romanian family fantasy film directed by Andrei Huțuleac. The story, inspired by Ion Creangă's "Amintiri din copilărie" and written by Mihai Mănescu, Andrei Huțuleac, and Matei Dima, revolves around Mara, a 12-year-old girl suffering from an aggressive form of cancer. In the film, Mara finds solace and escape in a magical yew tree near the Hospice Casa Sperantei palliative care center, which becomes a portal to the world of her favorite book. The film stars Maya Noelle Prediger, Teodor Corban, Matei Dima, and Cosmin Nedelcu. It premiered on March 25, 2022, and is produced by Prietenii Casei Speranței, Colorbitor Productions, and Viva la Vidra, in partnership with Chainsaw Europe, and distributed by Vertical Entertainment. The movie also inspired a novel of the same name, published in 2022 by Humanitas Junior.
Key Updates on Our Progress
Our existing site, complete with four functional buildings, is poised to welcome the new hospital, with steps underway to secure necessary building permissions.
A 10-bed palliative care unit is in the works, including specialized care for very young children, designed pro-bono by renowned architect Dorin Stefan.
We’re committed to ecological sustainability in the hospital’s construction, managed by Optim Management.
Budget and Fundraising
With an estimated budget of €3 million, we've reached halfway through our private fundraising phase and now aim to raise the remaining 50% publicly, seeking partnerships and support.
The Impact of Your Support
Children aged 1-18 needing intensive palliative care and their families.
The hospital will serve as a training hub for healthcare professionals in pediatric palliative care, building on our legacy of training over 25,000 healthcare staff in palliative care at our centers in Brasov and Bucharest.
Together, we can build more than a hospital - we're building hope, care, and a brighter future for children in need.
