The President and Baroness Nicholson visited the “Children’s city” in Pirita village.
A member of the European Parliament, Baroness Emma Nicholson Vinternburn, will provide Moldova with her assistance and consultations on the modernization of the national system for children’s care.
The President has declared that Moldova needs assistance from Europe in setting up a new structure according to the European standards. “Ms. Nicholson has valuable experience in adopting these standards in European countries, particularly in Romania in the past years”, - said the President.
During her interview with media, Baroness Nicholson highlighted that supporting children and taking care of them is the responsibility of every country and its government. The key point in implementing these changes should be the European law.
