To Children In Distress The Retiring Board Of Directors and The New Board Of Directors,
It has been my privilege and an honour to be connected to Children in Distress. I am so grateful to be your Patron. There is so much pride to be had for the work, concern, and love offered by Children in Distress. 32 years of dedication is inspiring and something for which our country is deeply grateful.
As with all institutions, change occurs as time passes. This now occurs at Children in Distress. Thank you all, current board members, you have served faithfully and dutifully for years, some of you since the very beginning. We could not have accomplished such important work, without your incredible service, time and concern. We honor and thank you for your service, and dedication.
The current Board, after years of successful activity, has determined it is time to pass leadership to a new group of leaders. For the members of the new Board, I wish you the best as you continue the work of the outdoing Board. I know that you will also be working with dedication, and renewed energy. I look forward to our new partnership, in order to sustain the delivery of high-quality services, developing new programs and caring for these young people who have no one but us.
With my kindest regards and gratefulness.
Princess Maria of Romania
Royal Patron of Children in Distress.
