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”.

Within the beautiful winter campaign, PO Filocalia has arrived in Chiperceni village, Orhei region.

Within the beautiful winter campaign, PO Filocalia also reached 10 lonely elderly and 5 socially vulnerable families from Chiperceni village, Orhei region. We have seen joy in the eyes of the elderly, they are rarely visited and our visit made them smile. Some have complained about a hard life, others told us how glad they were having children, but they were busy working abroad and rarely cross their threshold. Visiting the families, we have better understood what it meant to be a large and united family, where, despite difficulties, there is good education and harmony. Of course, our Santa brought some gifts and some necessary small things for the households. Thanks to everyone involved in the campaign!

One more activity for the soul within our campaign: “Be a Santa for someone”!

On December 16, 80 children from the village of Costesti, Ialoveni region; Cosnita village, Dubasari and children from the boarding school from Harbovat region had a very special day. A part of the children had the chance to watch the play “Snowman” at “Luceafarul” Theater in the capital, and another part of them – “Goritza’s Tree” at “Licurici” Doll Theater. After that, children went on a small trip through the Central Christmas Fair. The cool part was for them to receive gifts and to eat all together at “Andy’s Pizza” restaurant. We are grateful to Elena Munteanu for the donation, which made possible to pay the transport for a part of the children.

Every child has the right to be happy! Unfortunately, some of them have only things that do not bring joy to their soul. Therefore, PO Filocalia has not forgotten the 15 beneficiary families from Draguseni village, Straseni region. We were received by the children with positive emotions and big sincere smiles. We were glad to see how educated children were when thanking for everything they were receiving. Thanks to everyone involved in the campaign!
