Casa Mariana was initially built to provide a home for the three younger children who live at The Sanctuary. It is situated in Igisu-Nou in Transylvania and after two years of building, was opened on 9th April 2013.
Named Casa Mariana after a very brave lady who lived in a shack on a rubbish dump with two of the children who are going to live there, Mariana died of AIDS in 2007, but before that she left the children to be cared for by Love Light Romania. A brave lady who has left a legacy of hope to her children and future generations of her family, this was her parting wish.
The three children who will live in Casa Mariana, all have mothers who were infected with HIV, they thankfully have tested negative. Casa Mariana represents a house of hope, built to protect and guide and show that from living in a shack on a rubbish dump a better life can be created. The house will continue to be a light of hope for a brighter future to children born into a feral life.
