It is a soul project, through which we try to bring a ray of light in the lives of these suffering children, of their parents, who are permanently with them in the hospital and, last but not least, of the medical staff who take care of them. Because, it is said, art heals, art is perfection, it is a dream, it is a story, for mind and soul, and when it is addressed to people in great suffering, it can become a ray of hope ", he declared Eduard Uzunov, the initiator of the project.

"
The establishment of this center significantly reduces the risk of infections for these extremely sensitive little ones and also offers psychological comfort to children who, after spending months in hospita.
Supporting these children has become part of our lives in the last 10 years we have been volunteering for pediatric hospitals. A spiritual connection was created between us and the medical staff and we tried every time it was necessary to be present and to do everything we could to save a life, so that parents could focus as much as possible for the care of their children ", said Nicoleta Stoenescu, president of the Association" Wings to Life ".
