Moldovan fathers with their newborns
photo exhibition Early Moments Matter
The photo exhibition "Early Moments Matter" was inaugurated in Chisinau by UNICEF in partnership with the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova. The Photo Exhibition is part of UNICEF's "Early Moments Matter " campaign, which focuses on the first 1,000 days of a child's life and the impact of early experiences on the developing brain. Father’s Day is an opportunity to remember that fathers who have the possibility to bond with their babies from the earliest days of their lives further contribute to the harmonious development of their children.
The photographs portray 9 fathers interacting with their children in the first moments of their lives.
“The first 1,000 days of life - the time spanning roughly between conception and a child’s second birthday - is a unique golden opportunity period, when the foundations of optimum health, growth, and neurodevelopment across the lifespan are established.”
