Easter master-class for the children from Social center from Costesti village

Increasingly we feel the Easter spirit in the air. On April 29 brave volunteers of PO “Filocalia” living in Costesti village, Ialoveni region, went for a friendly visit to the Social center near to the local school. On this sunny day, curious boys and girls have crafted together with our volunteers a nice Easter decorative tree, Easter handmade greeting cards and decorative and painted eggs. They also have received small gifts from our organization, because it is not appropriate to visit children without small treats.


PA “Filocalia” at the Easter 2013 selling exhibition at MOLDEXPO

MOLDEXPO International Exhibition Centre from Chisinau this year hosted another lovely Easter Fair. PO “Filocalia” being in relations of friendship and partnership with MOLDEXPO, had the opportunity to participate with hand-made works and original master-classes for all curious visitors. From 25 to 28 April, “Filocalia” team had four days of joy, preparing for the great feast of the Resurrection of the Lord. Children, adults and grandparents came to the Easter Fair in order to get special presents for the loved ones or to enjoy the festive atmosphere and witness the exciting master-classes, which animated the exhibition.

A special day at Hirbovat boarding school

One sunny Sunday, at April 21, 5 brave volunteers of PO “Filocalia” went for a full day to visit the wonderful children at the special boarding school for deaf children from Harbovat village, Calarasi region. Pupils greeted us as usually with happy faces at the windows of the Institution. We came again this time with innovative ideas of original master-classes.


The last destination within the campaign HELP A GRANDPARENT TO SMILE

Today, April 9, 2013, through our visit to Tepilova village, Soroca regon, we have completed our campaign for elderly – “Help a grandparent to smile.” The campaign took longer than initially was expected because this winter wanted at all costs to stay longer in Moldova. End of February and the first half of March, the northern region of the country slumbered under the fluffy blanket of snow and we were not able to go with goods prepared for our elderly in time. What is important, however, is that we managed to distribute packages for 150 lonely, socially vulnerable or bedridden elderly.


Spring in Colonita village

Colonita is a village in the municipality of Chisinau, at a distance of only 8 km from the capital. But here are needy elderly who need moral and financial support that AO “Filocalia” offers with pleasure.
On April 5 we went with local volunteers, and also with international volunteers to visit grandparents from this region and provide them with clothes and food, but also with a good word. Some of them were bedridden for many years, others were lonely, others bent by the burden and weight of years, but still we have found them working in the garden, getting ready for spring.
