The last destination of our great Winter charity campaign!

At 25 of January, we have visited children from the Center ,,Lucic solnte’’ from Congaz village, in the South of our country. The volunteers of Filocalia have organized a winter master class, attended by 15 beneficiaries of the center. The children made handmade works: tissue snowmen and paper dears, winter cards and also participated to a very creative joint work. At the end, the little masters received sweet gifts. At the same time, 12 families with many children received packs of food, toys and small gifts for babies. We were glad seeing in the eyes of little children and parents a spark of hope and joy.


The first destination of the campaign, “Be a Santa for someone”, the 7th edition!

The PO’s “Filocalia” team visited the first beneficiaries of the campaign “Be a Santa for someone”, the 7th edition. Loaded with gifts and prepared for several winter master classes, our volunteers were welcomed with warmth and joy by 38 children with hearing disability from Harbovat Boarding school, from Calarasi. At the end of our meeting, we managed to collect many hugs and sincere smiles. This mission was a success thanks to people of good faith who came up with donations for these children.

We are very grateful to the VIENNA INSURANCE GROUP from Austria and also to individuals: Elena Maxim, Tatiana Lupacescu, Corina Sansonnens, Semira Touzi, Marcia Daenzer and Moldovan diaspora from Switzerland for their donations.

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 …
