Hospices of Hope is the leading palliative care charity in South Eastern Europe with over 25 years experience. At hospice we believe that everyone deserves the best possible care at the end of life. However in developing countries like Romania, Serbia, Moldova or Albania many patients still die in pain without being offered any physical, spiritual or emotional comfort. Regarding Albania, Hospices of Hope has currently the focus on increasing access to palliative care services on the national level while working and supportinglocal organizations that dedicate their services to those that are suffering of life limiting conditions.
