His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales visited, on Friday, the headquarters of the Hospice Casa Sperantei (Hospice House of Hope) in the Capital, where he talked to the adult patients, but also the children that benefit from the services of the daycare centre, sitting with them at the table where they were decorating Easter eggs.
His Royal Highness was greeted by founder of the organization, Graham Perrols, and the executive director, Mirela Nemteanu.
In the discussion with Graham Perrols, Prince Charles showed interest in the social-medical centre that will be opened near the Capital, in Adunatii Copaceni.
Once he reached the unit destined for adults, His Royal Highness shook hands with the staff and wanted to know how many nurses work in that section. Later, he entered two salons, where he discussed with patients, in order to find out more about the conditions they benefit from.
At the third floor of the Hospice Casa Sperantei headquarters, which hosts the paediatrics section, the psychologist and coordinator of the daycare center told His Royal Highness that the beneficiaries have recreative activities scheduled and invited them to join in. The Prince took a chair, next to Maria, a girl who extended her hand towards him.
‘If you’re Prince Charles, know that I made these for you. […] They’re not what I expected, but they’re beautiful, I want to give them to you’, said the girl, pointing to five decorated eggs.
HRH offered his thanks, and the girl replied that she knows “only a few words in English” and then rushed to prove it, counting to twelve. She then added the words ‘milk’ and ‘book’.
