Once, upon a time in Cotiujenii Mari village, Soldanesti region

Even if they are working all year around, during the Holidays, the Santa Clause’s elfs are busier than ever. But when you know that what you are doing is for a noble cause, it is as if The Lord gives you additional strengths. He must have some plan for us, and this is probably why he brought us in a fairy tale. And not just any fairy tale. Heading towards Costiujenii Mari, we were getting ready for just an ordinary day for us, but an extraordinary one for the children who would soon have smiles on their faces. We were already imagining how they would be hugging us and the surprise in their eyes as they would be looking at the Old Man with the red nose. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived in a fairy tale…

Getting involved as a volunteer to help bring change

 

We think that the most effective and nice way to develop the personalities of young poeple is to nurture their motivation to get involved in volunteering activities. Having this in mind, on December 21, 19 young people coming from the Left Bank of Nistru River (Speia village, Grigoriopol district) and 14 coming from the Right Bank, attended the training „Get involved as a volunteer to help bring change”, where they learned about the general aspects of this activity, and especially about the participation of volunteers in a social service.

Happiness of the children from Cosnita village, Dubasari region

I learn something new every day. Today, December 20, 2013 , during the campaign “Be a Santa for someone” organized by NGO “Filocalia” I’ve learned a great lesson. I have found that giving a smile can make someone happy.

Early in the morning with my new friends – volunteers of the organization, we started our road to Cosnita, Dubasari region. Dozens of children were waiting for us at the “Ion Creangă” local lyceum.

First successes of BE A SANTA FOR SOMEONE campaign

There are many people with a big heart. This is the conclusion PO “Filocalia” made after three weeks of Christmas campaign. Many people joined us, each with the help they could provide. So today, December 12, we come with big thanks to all the volunteers who actively participated in organizing events of the campaign, visits to beneficiaries and preparing for the charitable Fair to be held from 21 to 29 December at the exhibition center Moldexpo. We also thank those who contributed by financial aid or donations of any type for the campaign:
