Moldova Aid Project is the only charity giving regular help to Moldova's main children's hospital.

The 1,000 bed hospital has the appearance of a British hospital in the 1940s but with far poorer equipment. The lightweight iron bed frames support thin, heavily stained mattresses; large drugs cabinets on the wards contain just a dozen or so bottles and wall tiles in the operating rooms are cracked.

The corridor floors are covered with ripped lino while fluorescent tubes have been removed from many of the light fittings in an effort to conserve electricity.

The hospital cannot afford hot water. Between 8pm and 6am there is no running water at all.

The dedicated staff at the Hospital are aware of the equipment they need in order to treat very sick children and save lives, but they have little hope of obtaining it. The Moldovan government can not even fulfil its obligation to meet the hospital's utility bills. No educational exchanges have taken place with a first world country in recent times.

Over 300 mattresses, donated from the obsolete stock of hospitals in the South West of England, have been among the most important items provided by Moldova Aid Project. The mattresses have been shared among several departments of the Chisinau hospital and have entirely kitted out the neurology and new-born wards. Through future trips we hope to renew all the hospital's mattresses.

Our latest aid delivery included five adult beds, ten children's beds, 20 cots, six computers and numerous bags and boxes of surgical equipment.
