The ‘Nadia Comaneci’ Clinic was opened within the ‘Sfantul Spiridon Vechi’ medical and social establishment on Wednesday 8th Jul 2009, in the presence of the former Romanian gymnast and her family. Also present was Ilie Nastase, the Speakers of the two chambers of the Romanian Parliament, Mircea Geoana and Roberta Anastase and representatives of the Romanian Orthodox Church.
‘The idea of this establishment came after a TV programme stating that the clergy was not committed to social welfare. At that time, I consulted with Patriarch Teoctist and commenced the project of the ‘Sfantul Spiridon’ establishment, for which we borrowed the name from the church, and I was so very happy to receive of the support of major personalities like Nadia Comaneci who has been with this project since the beginning’, stated the priest of the ‘Sfantul Spiridon Vechi’ Church, Ioan Iordache.
Nadia Comaneci said she had accepted the idea of Father Iordache because it sounded special to her. ‘I felt honoured to be invited to take part in this project and now I am enchanted to see that our ideas have come to life and I would like to share my joy with all my friends whom I invite to continue supporting this wonderful establishment where people in need will receive actual assistance’, Comaneci said.
