“Filocalia’s” Santa Claus continued to enjoy his trip to as many children!

At December 27, gifts from Santa Claus went to children from the Creative Social Center ,,St. Filaret the Merciful” from  Costesti village, Ialoveni. Together with “Filocalia’s” volunteers children danced in a miraculous scenario of winter: many games, contests and poetry were delivered for the good old Santa Claus.  Also for the new team of young volunteers of “Filocalia” originally from Costesti village we have organized a visit to Chisinau city center and Pizza to thank them for being so receptive and united in their help in the winter campaign.

Impressions about working for FILOCALIA as a volunteer!

Impressions about working for FILOCALIA as a volunteer from abroad

,,I am from Germany and worked this November one month for the charity organization FILOCALIA. During my stay I helped the most time, preparing a Christmas project to support poor children.

All in all I can say working for FILOCALIA is interesting and makes a lot of fun. The atmosphere is really pleasant and I was surrounded by many local volunteers, who tried their best to speak in English with me (my Romanian skills are really poor).

For me it was a good time and I enjoyed working in such a great team, which does an important and excellent work to support people in need.”
