This is an exciting and challenging project for EH to undertake, not least because of the £3million needed to build it. Thanks to the generous support of companies and individuals in Romania and the UK the hospice have already raised over a third of the estimated costs to build, equip and run the new facility. Will you partner with us in building a bright hope for tomorrow for the hundreds of adults and children in Bihor county facing life threatening illness?

Plans for an in-patient unit and daycentre:


Together with Emanuel Hospice we are seeking partners large and small to buy a brick and help build the walls in this much needed facility for the dying adults and children in Bihor. We are seeking:

100,000 individuals to give £10

100 organisations to invest £10,000

10 corporate donors to invest £100,000

Buy a brick for £10
Buy 5 bricks for £50
Make a specific DonationClick and follow the directions

Why is this necessary?

  • 50,000 Romanians die every year with a cancer diagnosis
  • 1300 cancer related deaths/year in Bihor county where Emanuel is based
  • less than 5% of Romanians who need palliative care have access to it

How will it be used?

The new facility will allow Emanuel Hospice to expand their specialist services in a number of different ways:

  • 24hr in-patient care providing respite, symptom control and end of life care
  • Daycentre for adults & children (providing specialist therapies and access to nursing/medical personnel)
  • Out-patient clinic for ambulatory patients for medical consultation, counselling and provision of medical materials and equipment as required
  • Base for the home-care team
  • Adequate storage space under one roof (cutting down time wasted travelling to different sites collecting supplies)

What has happened so far?

In recognition of the need for more specialist palliative care services and the high standard of care provided by Emanuel Hospice to the community over the last 16years the local authorities have donated 5000sqm of land to Emanuel Hospice to facilitate the building of an in-patient unit to provide comprehensive care for the hundreds of adults and children with life threatening and life limiting illnesses in and around Oradea.


Marinela, the hospice Director, stated it is not in vain that the hospice is called Emanuel, ‘God with us’ for they are so conscious of His hand at work in so many ways and give thanks for his provision.

‘Bright hope for tomorrow…’

This phrase comes from the hymn ‘Great is thy faithfulness’ and as trustees we believe that God will do more than we can ask or imagine to provide for this work – because the God we love is faithful, keeps his promises and loves his people.  As Christians, we know that death is not the end of the story and that God longs to bring transformation to us all today.  Bright hope for tomorrow captures our belief that God will use this work to bring his light to change lives now and for eternity.
