The school year has started more than 2 weeks ago. We are spiritually fulfilled because we have succeeded to help 287 children in this year’s campaign “Help the bell ring for every child,” 3rd Edition. Children already can go to school, with their peers, with new backpacks with all necessary supplies.
Our last destination was an unplanned one in response to the call of a mother who goes to church “St. Dumitru ” from Chisinau. Mrs. Ciobanu is mother of three children: Christian, Valeria and Felicia. Because her husband is suffering from tuberculosis, she is only working for the family. Her very small salary can’t cover more then the apartment rent and some vital necessities. It is certainly a sad situation. However, the joy of these children receiving the supplies they need for school represented the final happy moment of our work of charity – the third edition of the campaign “Help the bell ring for every child.”
This year , from July 23 to September 5 , we developed a very nice campaign thanks to the generosity of individuals who have made donations, also thanks to our sponsors from Germany, as well as: local public authorities of Botanica region, National Network of stores ” Linella”, business and entertainment center ATRIUM, ” Iacob Ltd”, “HORNET MIG company, “Petrom-Moldova” company. With the help of all above mentioned, we managed to help many children from 15 regions of the country. Besides the necessary supplies for school, indispensable for a beginning of the new school year , the poorest families have received sweets, food packages and hygienic products.
This year we have also organized a big celebration for all those who wanted to join our cause. On August 25, we held a beautiful celebration in the Rose Valley Park from Chisinau . 100 children – beneficiaries from villages: Costesti, Cotiujenii Mari, and Cosnita enjoyed an exciting concert, dancing, face-painting and photo session with fairy tale characters. After the event followed hundreds of miles away in the country by car to personally hand to the children – beneficiaries backpacks with school supplies.
New localities have emerged this year in our list: Speia village, Grigoriopol region, Druta village, Rascani region, Bahmut and Sipoteni village, Calarasi and Calarasi town.
Covering more than 1500 km, we have found different life stories, we have met sad faces, happy faces sometimes, curious, eager, and sometimes unhappy ones. But surely human generosity and love for fellows remain two virtues that can change the fate of disadvantaged families.
We hope that our beneficiaries will enjoy their school days and the education they will receive during the next year. With your help we hope to continue the tradition of the campaign “Help the bell ring for every child» with new lists of beneficiaries next year.
