Help the school bell ring for every child AO Filocalia 2014

On the occasion of the beginning of the new academic year, between August 5 - September 5, AO Filocalia is launching the IVth edition of the Charitable Campaign Help the school bell ring for every child. The goal of the campaign is to facilitate inclusion in the school system of unprivileged, poor children from Moldova (families with difficult financial situation, with many children, single – parent families) through the collection and distribution of school supplies, backpacks and other material aids.

Because all children have the right to education and school, we invite you to contribute together with us to help get to school those children whose parents cannot afford it. Any donation, monetary or non-monetary is more than welcome. You can bring the donations directly to our address Sfatul Tarii St. 27, office 12, Chisinau, Moldova, MD-2012 or donate by bank transfer. You can also help by sharing this message.

This year we plan to provide help to 250 children from unprivileged families from several locations across the country: Chisinau, Sîngera, Călărasi, Comrat, Chirsovo, Cangaz, Cioc-Maidan, Cotiujenii Mari, Soldanesti, Truseni village, Strașeni, Cosnita village and Dubasari. The children beneficiaries were selected with the help of local authorities and AO Filocalia team, based on the difficult financial situations of their families.

At the end of the campaign, AO Filocalia will publish the achieved results together with other details on the allocation of donations, in a narrative and financial report, guaranteeing total transparency and the delivery of all donations to the destination.

The previous 3 editions of the respective Campaign in 2011, 2012, 2013 were successfully implemented, with around 1000 children receiving help across the country. Thanks to the financial contributions and material aids from our local and international partners and donors, as well as to the dedication of more than 50 AO Filocalia volunteers, the results of the previous campaigns were impressive and exceeded initial estimations. For more details on the previous editions please visit our website: 2011, 20122013.
