In Bucharest, over 30% of the population lacks medical insurance, and 50% of them are women. The Regina Maria Social Innovation Foundation grants free access to medical services, tests and treatments for 1,200 mothers without an income through the project “Help a mother stand up again!” held at the Baba Novac Social Polyclinic.
The Regina Maria Social Innovation Foundation is an NGO offering free medical services to people without an income or medical insurance and services at very low prices to people who earn less than RON 800 (EUR 172) per month. It has two educational centers in Clinceni and Băneasa, attended daily by 160 children coming from underprivileged families.
The foundation was started by physician Wargha Enayati, a cardiology specialist, who is also the founder and former owner of the private health care operator Regina Maria.
