The Cahul District Hospital was included in “A New Life” campaign initiated by the Edelweiss Foundation, which provides to the newly-minted mothers boxes with items necessary to take care of babies in their first weeks of life.

Each box contains disposable diapers, cotton bodysuits, cosmetics and medical products, a mattress and many other extremely useful things for the little ones. 

In four months since the project was extended to Cahul District Hospital more than 380 young families have received boxes with baby care products, which fact is highly appreciated by mothers. “We are pleased with the gift, it is an unexpected but very pleasant gesture”. 
 
The hospital administration also considers this project as welcomed one.  “We were envious of the work of this project of the “Edelweiss” Foundation and Mr. Plahotniuc, because other hospitals were already part of the project. Parents from Cahul district were looking forward for this project”, the Director of the Cahul District Hospital Anatolie Malcov said.
 
One year after the campaign was launched more than 7,600 boxes with products for newborns were donated. “A New Life” project is implemented already in four maternity hospitals of the country, and so far over 7,600 boxes have been distributed, which fact equals for the Edelweiss team with as many beautiful moments experienced with our beneficiaries”, the Executive Director of the Foundation of Vlad Plahotniuc “Edelweiss” Lidia Cucos said.
 
 “A New Life” campaign was inspired by national programs implemented many years in developed countries like Finland and Canada.
