Results of the campaign „Buds of hope”

One more spring, one more successful social campaign.

From the 20 of February until the 30 of April PO Filocalia developed the social campaign ”Buds of hope”. The campaign’s beneficiaries were more than 60 elderly (solitary elderly, burdened with material deprivation); 35 socially vulnerable families and 380 children from the following localities of the country:

  • Chișinău
  • Cărpineni, Hâncești
  • Costești, Ialoveni
  • Șoldănești
  • Zgurița, Drochia
  • Coșnița, Dubăsari
  • Drăgușeni, Strășeni
  • Goian
  • Hârbovăț, Călărași

During the spring campaign, activities were held both for  “Marţişor” feast and  also for Easter holidays.

The social campaign of Martisor had as heroes some young people who decided to get involved actively. We take the opportunity to thank them. We start the list of thanks with our dear teacher Alina Marandici for her dedication and the successes in her work with children from the decorative art workshop in the “St. Filaret the Merciful” Social Center. We also want to thank those who have decided to buy charity symbols of spring: Tatiana Chirilenco (Chemonics Company), Ilia Sorocean, Cristina Pascari, Margarita Ursu, Elena Rudoi, Nadejda Mocanu, Daniela Reabcinschi (Beauty Salon DIONA), Tatiana Kuzminov, Vasile Cepoi and Victor Buzatu (BioVic company).

A beautiful activity in this campaign was the action – “A MARTISOR makes the spring!”, through which we managed to offer a great day and a smile to elderly from Soldanesti Asylum and the beneficiaries from the village of Carpineni, Hancesti (they received martisors a s gifts, they also made them within a master class and they received clothes, sweets and fruits and hygiene of first necessity).
In Carpineni we combined two activities: we made martisors with the children of the Boarding School and donated them together with the children to socially vulnerable elderly people from the same locality.
On Easter we went several times to women with children in prison “Pruncul” near the capital, they received various gifts for them and the children and were involved in spring master classes. Also on Easter holidays we went to our old friends – minors from Goian penitentiary, with activities and gifts.

Between April 19-23, PO Filocalia successfully participated in the Easter Fair “Easter with Flowers” at the International Exhibition Center “Moldexpo” with children’s works. We want to thank this loyal partner for encouraging charity activities and for the long-term cooperation we have.

Also this year, for the first time, we were invited to participate in a charity fair at the high school “Iulia Hasdeu” from the capital. The works of children from the social centers of Filocalia were very much appreciated by the school students, parents and teachers.

We thank all those involved, Galina and Igor Mija for the donation of food products, Mrs. Maria Ciliuţă, the diaspora from Belgium and especially Bogdan Ciobanu, Cristina Ciobanu, the active volunteers: Sebastian Balamatiuc, Delepeev Silvia, Elena Bortă, Anastasia Sprâncean, Paul Vrabie, David Arina.



Buds of hope in Zgurita

On April 1, PO Filocalia went to the north of the country, in the village of Zguriţa, Drochia. We had a warm and sunny day. Several families and solitary elderly received hygienic products, food, clothes, toys and sweets. We thank Galina and Igor Mija for the donation! We urge everyone to join our social campaign! Together we can help more needy people.


Launching the campaign „Buds of hope”

Any end of winter also means a start of the long-awaited spring. In this seasonal nature revitalization, “Filocalia” aims to launch on February 20th the charity campaign “Buds of hope”.


Spring is coming!

Time passes quickly, we have recently admired new year’s fireworks and now we are already in February and we are looking forward for  the spring.


Closing of the campaign “Be a Santa for someone”, 8th edition


Two emotional days in Carpineni village, Lapusna region

Because Filocalia has many active volunteers, we managed to go to two destinations in one day! Thus, on 14 December we have spent a day full of activities with children from the boarding school in Carpineni village.



The Campaign ,,BE A SANTA FOR SOMEONE!”, 8th edition

We need the happiness of everyone in order to be happy” (Andre Malraux)

The wonderful winter holidays are close and we urge you again to be close to those who need us the most!
Christmas is the time of joy and presents, the time of magic and dreams coming true, of childhood and hopes. This is the holiday of the open heart: we must knock at socially vulnerable people’s doors and help them feel the spirit of the holiday.


A perspective for the future

In 2017 PO “Filocalia” celebrated 11 years of activity. This year – 2018 – we decided to make a general assessment of the organization’s activities, but also lessons learned to identify future prospects.


In the world of beauty

As “Filocalia” means “love of beauty”, on Sunday, after the Divine Liturgy, the children from the “St. Filaret cel Milostiv” Social Center in Costeşti, Ialoveni, went to Chisinau.
