On September 2, PO “Filocalia” heard the bell sound in the kindergarten no. 1 from Costesti village, Ialoveni region. We had to be present at such a special day for the little ones since they are our youngest partners and volunteers: they have presented beautiful concerts for elderly from the Republican Asylum and shows for pupils from the Boarding school no. 5 – children with mental disabilities from Chisinau.
Children greeted the guests with the traditional “bread and salt”, and with a bunch of poems. Even the local Mayor came to wish them a good start of the school year. And Father Vasile Ciobanu and Grigorita Ion – priests of “St. Nicholas” church from the village have blessed all those present and wished to the institution to be a place for knowledge acquisition and moral behavior for children.
But PO “Filocalia”, with the generous support of the Organization “Schmitz Hille Stiftungen”, considering the social commitment of these children, taken at a young age, have renovated the summer playground of the kindergarten. Children were excited and climbed the new swings and the teachers could hardly gather them in their classrooms.
The Romanian poet Lucian Blaga said: “Childhood is the heart of all ages.” We wish our little friends to have a new year full of success and as many memories on their new playground!
