We are very glad when we succeed in our campaigns to help more beneficiaries than we originally planned. “Be a Santa Claus for someone!”Campaign was held between 19.11.12 – 19.01.2013, during the holiday season, and aimed to collect donations in any form for socially vulnerable children and elderly from rural regions of the country and also for children with mental and physical disabilities from Chisinau and Harbovat special school for deaf children.
This year we had a general sponsor of our campaign, which helped us to offer better holydays for many disadvantaged people. In this context we thank the National Network of stores “Linella” for financial support and for organizing a memorable holiday for 30 children from the social center “Pacuras” from Cotiujenii Mari village, Soldanesti region.
One thing that also made us to be more motivated in everything we do, was the contribution of those who are thousands miles away from Moldova, yet still thinking of her and the needy people from here. Special thanks for the financial support to Corneliu Calancea – a person, who for many years is abroad, but with his heart, is home and who follows on-line our activities. It’s not complicated to make a good thing and it is not necessary to be a millionaire to help others, the important thing is to want it and be sensitive to others’ problems. We can not help all the needy, but campaigns organized by NGO “Filocalia” are a good example of the fact that there are more and more, every year people of good will who want to get involved, and this persuades us that We are a nation with a big heart…
