Winter holidays are coming and the time is right to stand by those less fortunate!
Christmas is the celebration of joy, gifts, childhood and fulfilled hopes. It is the time for opening our hearts: we must open our doors to those in need and help them forget their sorrows.That is why the Association “FILOCALIA” comes with the desire to make happier some sad and lonely people and invites you to join us and together to offer them a brighter Christmas.

This year we are at the third edition of the Campaign “Be a Santa for someone!”, which is initiated today, November 25 and will last until January 10, 2018 . The campaign aims to bring the joy of Christmas to children who rarely have their wishes accomplished, to support people with special needs, through engagement and promotion of volunteering as a form of civic activity.
Beneficiaries of this year’s campaign are 400 children, 70families and 100 elderly people from the following localities: Costesti, Ialoveni; Cosnita, Dubasari; Zgurita, Cotova, Drochia; Harbovat, Calarasi; Drăguşeni, Străşeni; Cotiujenii Mari, Şoldăneşti; Sălcuța, Căușeni;  Speia, Grigoriopol; Comrat; Căușeni and Chisinau.
In the campaign we intend to carry out the following actions: “Help a fellow” – developing the concept “gift from gift” where each child can bring sweets, fruit , school supplies, toys, for an unhappy child, promoting the slogan: “You are their Christmas!”
The action “Be a Santa Claus for a grandparent” with slogans “We sing carols to help”, “A gift bought – an elderly helped” involves collecting goods and financial resources for the elderly. The money raised will be used for buying food, fruits and other necessary things and go to visit them with carols and good mood. We will visit the solitary elderly that you all know already from previous project activities.
The action “A Christmas for Everyone” provides the participation of children from socially vulnerable families from the villages a visit to Chisinau theatres for assisting at special winter holiday shows.
Like last year, we have also this year the support of our national network of shops “LINELLA” and the International Exhibition Centre “MOLDEXPO “. They will host a Christmas fair with beautiful works made by children from social centers sponsored by the organization.
Let’s be generous! Join our team and be a Santa Claus for a child, for a person who, although do not know you, will be happy with your help!
