In 2006, Agapedia refurbished and refurnished the Chisinau Children’s Hospital’s entire ward for undernourished children, which did not have warm water or sufficient heating. Needy mothers who brought the undernourished babies from their villages received powdered milk until the end of 2017, so they were able to care for their children after leaving the hospital. At the same time, mothers were able to use the services of our socio-medical center, which is located right next to the children’s hospital.
House for children and mothers Chisinau
In our center, infants between 0 and 3 years of age are cared for during the day, whose mothers would otherwise have abandoned them because they have neither a job nor a place to stay. Many of the infants arrive at our center in a pitiful condition and need to be nursed back to health. While the children slowly recover during the day with our loving team of staff, the mothers must either catch up on their schooling or go to work so that they can provide for themselves and their child independently in the future. During this process, they are closely supervised by our social worker and a psychologist in order to strengthen the mother-child bond and make it secure. Since summer 2022, we run the project in partnership with Diaconia Moldova.
