Mayor of Ulaan­baatar S.Bat­bold hur­ried to Ur­guu, Khuree and Am­galan Ma­ter­nity Hos­pi­tal on Jan­uary 1 to wel­come the first ba­bies of the new year. A few hours af­ter giv­ing birth, the new moth­ers re­ceived a bun­dle of do­mes­ti­cally-pro­duced gifts that will as­sist their moth­er­hood.

While meet­ing the new­born ba­bies, Mayor S.Bat­bold said, “The birth of a new fam­ily mem­ber brings joy to the fam­ily and is valu­able to the na­tional de­vel­op­ment in the long run. I’m happy to be vis­it­ing three ma­ter­nity hos­pi­tals in the cap­i­tal to­day and per­son­ally hand­ing out gifts and cer­tifi­cates to ba­bies born just a few hours ago.

“I’m told that around 20 new ba­bies have been born so far since the New Year’s count­down. Joy and hap­pi­ness are ra­di­at­ing from all the moth­ers. I wish good for­tune and good health to all of them and their ba­bies. I’m also grate­ful to the na­tional pro­duc­ers who co­op­er­ated with us on this ini­tia­tive. We will or­ga­nize this mea­sure as a tra­di­tion every year from now on.”

Mayor S.Bat­bold was ac­com­pa­nied by Deputy Mayor Sh.Ankhmaa and some lo­cal pro­duc­ers who pro­vided the gifts.

Dur­ing the visit, direc­tor of Made in Mon­go­lia NGO G.Mait­set­seg ex­pressed that she was ea­ger to take part in the ini­tia­tive to dis­trib­ute gifts to ba­bies born on the first day of 2018 when she first re­ceived the request.

“This mea­sure is the ex­act def­i­ni­tion of sup­port­ing na­tional pro­duc­ers. We’re very happy to have been asked to pro­duce the gifts,” she said.

The gift box in­cludes a baby wrap­ping and a bag that con­tains all the ne­ces­si­ties for a new­born and a mother which also turns into a wrap­ping when un­folded.

Ac­cord­ing to the Ulaan­baatar Mayor’s Of­fice, the most num­ber of ba­bies, specif­i­cally 11 new­borns, were born at Am­galan Ma­ter­nity Hos­pi­tal on Mon­day Morn­ing. Re­port­edly, 28 women were wait­ing to de­liver their baby from 9:00 a.m. on De­cem­ber 31, 2017 to 9:00 a.m. on Jan­uary 1, 2018.
