True charity is the desire to be useful to others with no thought of recompense.

Results of the campaign “Be a Santa for someone”, 7th edition, 2018!

Between November 20, 2017 and January 30, 2018, PO Filocalia conducted its 7th charity campaign “Be a Santa for someone”. The aim of this event was to help as many socially vulnerable people as possible by developing the concept “Gift from gift”, and to remind those who do not lack things that there are people who need their support. It is not complicated to do good and it is not necessary to be millionaires to help others, it is important to want this and to be emphatic and sensitive to other’s problems. All the donors of our campaign have shown that the problem of poverty is something they are aware of and they want to involve and be part of our project. With their help, we were able to do more than we have initially planned. Thus, the beneficiaries of the Campaign were 550 children, 85 needy families, 70 elderly from the following localities: Costeşti, Ialoveni; Coşniţa, Dubăsari; Congaz, Comrat; Hârbovăţ, Călăraşi; Zgurita, Drochia; Drăguşeni, Străşeni; Cotiujenii Mari, Soldanesti; Salcuta, Causeni; Chiperceni, Orhei.

Their joy is our joy!

During the winter holidays PO Filocalia went with gifts to the beneficiaries from the village of Costesti, Ialoveni region. So, Santa filled his bag with gifts, toys, fruits, food and hygienic products, and went to those who were waiting for him. Children sang beautiful carols to the delight of our old Santa. Of course, children but also elderly enjoyed the small gifts.

Thanks to everyone involved in the campaign!

PO Filocalia’s Santa Claus has arrived in Zgurita village, Drochia region!

PO Filocalia’s Santa Claus has arrived in Zgurita village, Drochia region, where 15 lonely elders and 15 socially vulnerable families were waiting for us. Thus, the beneficiaries received packages of food, hygiene products, clothes and toys. It was very sad to see an old man who does not have a family, who is almost all the time in bed, and comes out very rarely, who does not receive a pension because he does not have an identity card… We, people who have a salary and a normal life, we don’t even realize that somewhere there is a person in such a difficult situation. But those people exist, and unfortunately they are many. As long as we can, we must help people like that man, also because “gift from gift brings us closer to Heaven”.
