Tens of children from Viisoara village have been examined by pediatricians, within the “Revive Moldova” campaign, initiated by Vlad Plahotniuc’s Foundation “Edelweiss”.  The little ones have been consulted, and for some of them it was the first time they were examined with an ultrasound device.
"The majority of patients have anemia, we have recorded low hemoglobin values and children up to 3 years old with the level of hemoglobin less than 60 that is a considerable problem for the growing organism” stated the pediatrician, Ina Mihalachi.

 For all children, the doctors have recommended treatments and additional investigations, also the parents received advices regarding the care of little ones during the growing period.

Due to the fact that the children beneficiated from these free of charge examinations, the parents seemed to be very happy. They said that in the village there are few specialists, and in critical situations they are supposed to go to the district hospital.

“I have three children and I understand how much their health counts. This campaign initiated by Edelweiss is a very beneficial action, because our village is situated 37 kilometers distance from district and this is a long distance, many persons can’t afford to come to district hospital, also there are socially vulnerable families and children with disabilities”, declared the mayor of the Viisoara village,  Ina Ciubotaru.

Free consultations offered to children, be they infants, preschoolers or adolescents, are a component of the project established by The Foundation of Vlad Plahotniuc “Edelweiss”, under the slogan “Renaşte Moldova” (Revive Moldova). 

During eight months, many villages from Republic of Moldova are visited by the Mobile Paedriatic Consulting Room, where the doctors can offer free of charge consultations. Up till now, more than four hundred children from 50 localities, were examined.
