We operate a home for life (Casa Lumina) for 23 orphaned special needs young adults in Comanesti, Romania and we operate a multi-disciplinary community palliative care service for children and young adults (Hospice Casa Albert) in Luncani, Romania. Who Benefits: (a) The 23 young adults resident at Casa Lumina continue to be the primary beneficiaries of the work and financial support provided by CITD. However, the local community of Comanesti have also benefitted directly by the provision of local employment and through the education of children and the local community in aspects of social care, (b) Through our multi-disciplinary team at Hospice Casa Albert 85 children were in receipt of palliative care services and they and their families also received counselling, education and advocacy. A day care facility at the hospice also provided respite. Staff have also been supported in their continuing professional development, (c) Through a programme of planned visits to Romania from the UK, CITD continued to offer an opportunity for over 100 people to engage practically and spiritually with our two projects, to undertake building modifications, engage with the children and young people in social and therapeutic activities and to support local staff.
