Another 4 babies were born this fall thanks to a donation program from the Metropolitan Municipality.
Of all the newborns under this program, the boys are already 9 and the girls - 4. In anticipation of the good news are several more families from Sofia, who needed in vitro procedures with donor eggs.
Since 2015, CO has been assisting women with reproductive problems under the program, which was created jointly with the organizations "Donor Mothers" and "I Want a Baby". So far, a total of BGN 163,308 has been paid for it, and donor in vitro procedures amounting to BGN 30,376 have been carried out in 2019 alone. The budget of Sofia annually provides for BGN 70,000 for this purpose.
