On June 1st, at International Day of Children Protection, PO “Filocalia” held at the lake of Costeşti village an unforgettable celebration. 170 people were present, of which 130 beneficiary children and 40 teachers, parents, local volunteers and international volunteers who have helped to create a cheerful atmosphere with games, contests and lots of music, dance and fun.
Despite forecasted rain storms, we had a beautiful sunny day, which allowed us to organize more outdoor activities.
All children divided into 6 teams, have invented the name and the motto of their team and competed for the most successful invented costume. All present were impressed by the creativity of the participants. They have received as a reward sweets and fruits. After the tasty meal provided by the parish church “St. Nicholas” from Costeşti village, talented children danced, played songs, recited poems. All were rewarded with applause and small gifts for remembering the event.
Our friends and partners from the CCCY (Community Center for Children and Youth with physical disabilities) have come up with field games and table games that trained children in various cognitive occupations. Those who wished to be face-painted were transformed by volunteers of Filocalia in fairy bugs, butterflies and fairy tale characters. Volunteers of the Community Center have presented a nice integrated dance and a well-known story converted into a sketch.
We thank all the volunteers and teachers for the active involvement. Thanks to the CCCY partner for collaboration and a big thank to those who contributed financially to our feast:
