The soul visit to elderly from Costesti village, Ialoveni region

At 18th of March we have decided to bring some goods to the elderly from Costesti village, Ialoveni region. 12 empty houses with only one pair of eyes in each have met us that day. Like everyone we have visited so far, grandparents from this village were lonely and sad. Our volunteers tried to ease their pain with a word of encouragement, a smile and some gifts collected within the campaign “Help a grandparent to smile”.

Smiles for the elderly from Draguseni village, Straseni region

Friday, March 15, along with several volunteers, we have made a surprise to some people in need. The visit to helpless elders was my first experience of this kind. To be honest, I had a lot of emotions, which are hard to explain in words. Being prepared to see some unpleasant things, however the reality was much more painful and difficult than I assumed.

National network of shops “Linella” has become a trusted partner of PO “Filocalia”. On 14th of March, “Linella’s” director – Mr. Nicholae Pojoga, turned 35 years old and the team of employees, knowing his selfless nature and knowing him to be a true Christian, decided to prepare for him a special gift. They have invited (helped by PO “Filocalia”) 18 children from socially vulnerable families singing in the village Costesti’s church choir, to sing “Happy Birthday”.

On the International Women’s Day, PO “Filocalia” team and several volunteers – Ursachi Alexei and Mihaela brothers, Bejan Doina and me – Moloman Cristina, within the campaign “Help a grandfather smile”, decided to make a small celebration and bring sunshine into the houses of some vulnerable people from Cotiujenii Mari village, Soldanesti region.

A smile for the elderly from Cosnita village

PO “Filocalia” team is always going to Cosnita village, Dubasari region with great pleasure. First of all because here we have our good, old friends from the social center “House of hope”. On March 7th, before the International Women’s day, we have decided, along with five loyal volunteers to go to that place with many activities. We prepared a gift for the social center – 2 panels with photographs of the Center’s activity collected over the years.
