First impressions count- my first visit to CID projects

Piers Hurn, grandson of June Hurn, a long term supporter and Trustee of Children in Distress, shares his first impressions of Romania, St Margaret’s and St Andrew’s Hospices and the children in their care.

Hot, dusty, bleak and rundown with a startling number on new buildings

“This was my first visit to Romania and my first impressions once leaving the airport building in Bucharest was how hot and dusty the place was. In the car from the airport to St Margaret’s Hospice, I saw row upon row of bleak, rundown blocks of apartments but also a startling number of new buildings.  I found the car journey strange because not only was the car left hand drive on the right hand side of the road, but there was a huge amount of traffic, by comparison to the UK.  I was also slightly upset by the numbers of stray dogs and dead dogs just left by the side of the road.
