"I want a mother" is a project of the International Children's Fund Romania, which applies to children from the "Panait Sarbu" maternity hospital - Giulesti, sector 6, children at risk of maternal abandonment by mother (newborn) for various reasons can not take over the care and growth tasks of the newborn. By "child abandonment in maternity" we understand the mother's refusal to have any contact with her child, for various reasons: financial, lack of housing, relational problems with family members, or fear of mother's attachment to her own child. The project seeks to create a maternal and child affective relationship, a relationship based on maternal feelings after birth, a decrease in the number of abandoned children in the maternity ward, prevention of abandonment, counseling and financial help for child care and care. The aim of the project is to give the child the chance to develop harmoniously in the first months of life with his mother and family.
