The kingdom of silence!

On 25 October, on a sunny autumn day, the Filocalia team, together with its dedicated volunteers Natalia Luca and Elena Bortă, visited their friends from the Special School for Children with hearing disabilities in the village of Hîrbovăţ, Călăraşi. These kids wake up every morning, take breakfast, go to classes like any other children, but they are different, because they do not hear, there’s a deep silence in their world. At school, we were glad to see both the school administration and all the little ones. As always, the children actively participated in the classroom activities prepared by us. The atmosphere was very pleasant, and on children’s faces one could read only serenity, innocence, modesty …

First destination of the campaign “Help the bell ring for every child”

On September 8, the volunteers of “Filocalia” went to visit children from Coşniţa village, Dubăsari region, sharing school supplies. Of course children received us with big smiles on their faces, but it was more amazing when they looked curiously in their bags to see what they had been given. In addition to the school supplies, children received sweets and clothes. PO Filocalia brings sincere thanks to a man with a great soul, thanks to whom it was possible to carry out this action. Also, thanks to Munteanu family from Costesti, for the donation of clothes.
