On March 15, 2014 another beautiful charity campaign organized by the NGO ” Filocalia ” titled “A martishor can make the spring” has finished. If in our last two campaigns the basic beneficiaries were children from poor families, in the spring campaign we have decided to help another category of beneficiaries – namely solitary elders and those socially marginalized.
This time with us were three basic local sponsors who helped us to conduct a special charity fair: LINELLA national retail network, Municipal Theatre “Eugene Ionesco” and Debtcollection Incasso company. We thank them a lot for their support. After sales, we were able to collect the amount of 5000 lei. And as the hand made cards and “martishors” were made by the beneficiaries of our social centers, were distributed 2500 lei to the small craftsmen for their work (the money will be used to procure materials for the proper functioning of the workshops sponsored by PO “Filocalia”) .
This year the “Martishor” holiday came also to Moldovans from Belgium, where a fair was held in which we managed to gather the amount of 600 euro. With the money raised from the two fairs we have managed to make many elderly happy. The beneficiaries were from four regions of the country: the Asylum from Soldanesti , several elderly bedridden and those from the social center “House of Hope” from Cosnita, Dubasari, solitary elderly from Costesti village, Ialoveni region and beneficiaries of the nursing home from Calaraseuca, Ocnita region. Elderly have received both food and hygiene packs and gifts for the arrival of spring. They also received clothes donated by an international volunteer who brought them directly from Germany.
Thanks again to all who were involved in this event, especially to the volunteers who have been with us and always offered unconditional help.
