Help the bell ring for every child!

All children have the right to have access to quality education and a decent life; for a country to prosper a good educational system needs to be in place. In order to abolish discrimination between social classes, in order to start seeing people equal, we suggest destroying the walls between children of the same age. Those children have equal rights, but unfortunately unequal possibilities. Thereby, PO “Filocalia” launches the 6 edition of the Social Assistance campaign: “Help the bell ring for every child”, between the 7 August and 30 September 2017. The purpose of the campaign is to help children from unprivileged and socially vulnerable families from Moldova (small income, many children, mono-parental) to better integrate into the educational system, through collecting and distributing school supplies, backpacks and material aid.

From the heart for other hears!

At 28 March, Filocalia’s team of volunteers went to bring some joy to elderly people from Costești village, Ialoveni region. They gifted food products, hygiene products, fruits, spring handmade cards and flowers. But the most important part was talking with them. Those people really miss conversations, they always feel lonely. During this soul dialogs, volunteers got really emotional about a case:  an old lady who almost lost sight, crying for help to work her garden. She wanted to have her garden prepared for the Easter holidays and volunteers gladly helped her with that.  Big thanks to Maria Borta, teacher Marina Borta and the 10 class from “Olimp” Lyceum, Costesti village and also children from “St. Filaret the Merciful” center for the donations they managed to gather.
