This year PO “Filocalia” decided to organize in another way the festival “Spring from children’s soul.” No official opening, no special guests, just with children and for children.
After participating in a series of Charity Easter Fairs, we managed to collect some finance to make a special event for some of the children-beneficiaries of our organization. For this we thank the volunteers who were actively involved, but also our partners: “The Poste of Moldova”, the shopping center “ATRIUM” and the International Exhibition Center “MOLDEXPO”.
Between 20.04 and 31.05 a big Easter exhibition with children’s works was organized at the National Museum of Ethnography of Chisinau, where visitors could admire a wonderful collection of children’s works: paintings, Easter decorations and artfully decorated eggs.
We went with our dear volunteers in three rural areas with sweets and 3 Easter master-classes for children from 3 regions: Costesti, Cotiujenii Mari and Harbovat villages. We have participated to the event organized by the Association of Blinds from Chisinau: “Open your heart!» We gathered 24 children from the social center “House of Hope” from Cosnita, Dubasari for a holiday table with fun and lots of music and dancing at McDonalds. We managed to get 134 children to a wonderful show at the national theater “Guguta” and 40 children and youth with disabilities to the theater “Luceafarul” from the capital. We have served with delicious pizza 110 children from socially vulnerable families from rural areas of the country. And last but not least we managed to organize for the beneficiaries of social centers sponsored by PO “Filocalia” two memorable trips to the beautiful Moldovan monastery Curchi. And because all work and effort has its reward, on May 10 we gathered 40 brave volunteers and went to a Monastery and sacred place in northern Moldova – Calaraseuca where we have learned amazing things about the history of those places and drank water from the 3 sources of the Mother of God.
The multiple photos taken at these events are very suggestive and show the real atmosphere of joy and fulfillment of children and young people involved in the activities. Please visit our facebook page to see pictures: http://www.facebook.com/pages/FILOCALIA-charity-organization/180849341958447
