The national campaign to protect children’s health supported by Edelweiss managed to visit till now 20 localities of the Republic of Moldova, where more than 1 300 children were provided with consultations. “We go to remote villages which are far away from the district centers, where either there are no family doctors, or according to the local authorities notifications there are many vulnerable children, which need treatment and investigations”, explained the Edelweiss Executive Director Lara Moraru.

The results of the campaign supported by Edelweiss were not long in coming. After being provided with free consultations by a team of pediatricians 30 children have been diagnosed with quite serious diseases. Further, all these children will follow treatments at the Institute of Mother and Child, where they will receive specialized medical care.

One month ago the Edelweiss Foundation launched a national campaign to protect children’s health, especially rural children. Under this campaign a Mobile Pediatric Cabinet goes to the villages of the Republic of Moldova to provide free medical consultations. 
  
In the next eight months the “Revive Moldova” Mobile Pediatric Cabinet will reach over one hundred villages of the country according to the agenda available on the Foundation’s website – www.edelweiss.md ‎
