Princess Marina Sturdza, Patron, Hope and Homes for Children

It is with great sadness that we announce the death in November, of one of our longest serving patrons, Princess Marina Sturdza.

Marina’s on-going commitment, very often quietly and always with great dignity behind the scenes, has enabled us to transform the lives of thousands of children who are now enjoying the love and protection of a family”, said CEO, Mark Waddington. “And this is not only in Romania and Moldova, but in many more countries around the world,” he added. Princess Marina Sturdza, was a member of Romania’s oldest reigning royal families, is a journalist and commentator who was well-known across Central and Eastern Europe for her work with many civil society organisations.

She was a long-time supporter and effective advocate for Hope and Homes for Children and will be greatly missed.
