Adjud, Romania, December 6, 2019
Vrancea County’s first palliative care ward for the terminally ill opened last week at the municipal hospital in the city of Adjud, Romania. In honor of the occasion, the Archdiocese of Buzău and Vrancea of the Romanian Orthodox Church made a considerable donation to the ward through its philanthropic department and the Deanery of Panciu.
In particular, the new ward received from the Church 12 air conditioners, 11 refrigerators, 1 stove, 11 TVs, 1 microwave, 24 blankets, and 11 wall supports for the TVs, reports the Basilica News Agency.
Protopresbyter Cristinel Popa also blessed the new spaces within the hospital on November 28.
The hospital manager, Monica Bercea, thanked Archbishop Ciprian for his support. “You have helped us make our motto: ‘We must add life to the days, when we can no longer add days,’ to become a reality. We all want to be better, more human, at least for a moment to bend our ear and soul to the needs of our fellow human beings, to help them with a drop of hope, as the good God urges us,” she said.
“This donation, coming from you, has a deep echo in our souls and of those in great distress, our future patients, who will be in need,” the manager added.
Yesterday, it was reported that the Pro Vita pro-life organization of the Archdiocese of Iași is running a large-scale food drive for two weeks this month to benefit large families this winter season.
