Today, dozens of pregnant women took part in the public sports lesson, organized by the Center of Mother and Child in partnership with Edelweiss Foundation and Unica Sports Network within the framework of the campaign „Revive Moldova.“ For twenty minutes, under the supervision of specially trained coaches, future mothers did a series of exercises that are suitable for pregnancy. The event was held outdoors in the park of the Institute for Mother and Child.

The Director General of the Institute for Mother and Child, Stefan Gatcan, said that the sports lesson was organized with the view to attract attention towards both the importance of a healthy lifestyle during pregnancy, and the campaign „Revive Moldova.“ „We encourage future mothers to go in for sports and lead a healthy lifestyle during the nine months of pregnancy, as we wish all the best for them and their children. We want to provide the best conditions for them here, at the Institute for Mother and Child. Therefore, we launched the campaign „Revive Moldova“ by means of which we want to transform the Institute into a modern maternity hospital, where future mothers will be provided with everything they need, from comfortable conditions to the state-of-art equipment“, said Stefan Gatcan.

The Executive Director of Edelweiss Foundation, Lara Moraru, thanked mothers who came to go in for sports and reminded about the results that have been achieved within the framework of the campaign „Revive Moldova“: „Edelweiss Foundation and Vlad Plahotniuc were supporting the Institute for Mother and Child from the very beginning and we are proud of what has been done so far together. The hospital is reviving, just before our eyes, and we are confident that next year you will come here and will be accommodated in a modern maternity hospital, where mothers come with joy and feel comfortable and safe. For us, as for all the people in the Republic of Moldova, the Institute for Mother and Child is synonymous with the word „life“. The majority of children of Moldova were born here and here the future generations will be born”.

Also, Galina Thomas, the Director General of Unica Sports Network, expressed the determination to join the project of the Institute modernization as a partner.

The campaign „Revive Moldova“ aims to raise about 18.5 million MDL, the amount necessary for the modernization of the Institute for Mother and Child. Funds will be used for repair works, modernization and purchase of medical equipment for the institute. Six stages of modernization will take place during this year, as soon as the necessary money is collected. Since the beginning of the campaign, since April until today, about 22% of the required funds have been collected.
