First Lady of Moldova announced her commitment to support actions benefiting underprivileged children
February 28, 2014 − UNICEF Representative in Moldova, Mrs. Nune Mangasaryan, and First Lady of Moldova, Mrs. Margareta Timofti, had their first meeting on Friday, February 28, 2014.
Mrs. Mangasaryan informed the First Lady about UNICEF programs and asked for her support in improving the situation of children in Moldova, particularly the most disadvantaged.
Moldova adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1993 and since then steadily works to meet the country’s obligations to child rights.
“The Association Agreement EU-Moldova has a separate chapter on the state’s commitment to ensure the rights of children and this is a great achievement. Moldova is the only country in the Eastern Partnership which has a chapter on child rights. Therefore, we are all ready to join efforts to support Moldova and provide a better life for all children”, UNICEF Representative in Moldova said.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
