The best gift for winter holidays for everyone is a happy family reunion. But many children and old people do not get this joy. And if the whole family is present, the feast is sometimes overshadowed by poverty, cold and sadness. In these circumstances, the team of PO “Filocalia” tried to bring some hope and warm in the souls of children and elderly burdened by needs.

To create a festive atmosphere, children form the Pedagogical Assistance Service from Calarasi have prepared a surprise for us, by wearing costumes of differentfairy tale characters and staging some folktales. We all felt the special atmosphere of the holiday season, and the children were very receptive and enthusiastic. We completed our work together with an interesting master-class, the children worked in groups and have made special items. And like any winter holiday, Santa’s big bag was full of gifts for each child.

Volunteers of “Filocalia” also went to bring warmth into the homes of needy children. They went with gifts and food for poor families from the town Sangera. And the most vulnerable families from Draguseni village, Straseni enjoyed the presence of Santa with gifts. Besides sweets, toys and food, girls received some fansy hats donated by ,, SC Calivana Company ‘, whom we thank from all our heart.

We sincerely thank the teachers and pupils of “Mihai Eminescu” lyceum, from Chisinau, and High School “Olympus” from Costesti village, Ialoveni for the collected donations – toys, school supplies and clothes – which were distributed to families from Cotiujenii Mari village, Soldanesti region, and the entire staff of the High School “Vasile Vasilache” from Chisinau for collected donations which made happy children from “Pedagogical Assistance Service” from Calarasi.

We thank from all our heart all those who are not indifferent to the needs of the people in need. Happy holidays to you!
