From 2004 to 2008, the project has been financially supported by Caritas Luxemburg.

Since 2009, Caritas Moldova in partnership with Caritas Switzerland continued to develop this project which consists of offering supplementary food for children with TB from Chisinau. From September 2011, the project has focused its attention on children from the Department of Phthisiopneumology at the Municipal Hospital in Bălţi. During 3 years children have enjoyed supplementary food such as dairy products, meat and juices.

Project goal: the monthly supply of nutritional goods to the children at Municipal hospital of Phtisiopneumology in Chisinau and the Department of Phthisiopneumology at the Municipal Hospital in Balti. Supplementary foods given to children make the application of treatment and prophylaxis of the infection more efficient.

Beneficiaries: children from the Municipal Hospital of Phtisiopneumology in Chisinau and the Department of Phthisiopneumology at the Municipal Hospital in Bălţi. Most of the hospitalized children come from vulnerable families or orphanages.

Achievements: between March 2013 and January 2014, 240 children from the Municipal Hospital of Phtisiopneumology and 100 children from the Department of Phthisiopneumology at Municipal Hospital in Balti enjoyed supplementary food such as dairy products, dietary boiled sausages, juice and vegetable and fruit puree. Also, during 3 months children benefited from additional food supply such as biscuits for afternoon luncheon.
