  1. Second “Mother-Baby” department planned!

    In April of 2016 director Olga Ivanovna started this project “I will manage everything if my mum is nearby”. It was a risk to start this project because no one knew if mothers with newborn, disabled children would get in contact with NBH and whether this offer was needed. With great commitment and anticipation, the renovation was planned and carried out.
    At the end of 2017, this new department was opened and a waiting list had to be created in early 2018!
