The “Caps for the Future” initiative is holding its 9th campaign throughout the country. The campaign involves collecting plastic bottle caps and turning them into a valuable resource and, with the money raised from recycling them, helping to buy incubators for premature babies and neonatal ambulances for hospitals.

Today and tomorrow, caps as well as aluminum cans will be collected in 26 towns around the country. Over the past four years the “Caps for the Future” NGO has donated 22 incubators to municipal hospitals and has purchased medical equipment for children’s hospital wards in another 14 medical establishments.

Martina Yordanova from “Caps for the Future” announced that the initiative has already provided for the first neonatal ambulance which will be donated in Plovdiv next week, and will be used in five regions. The campaign for raising money for a second ambulance continues.
