Graduates of boarding schools will offer Christmas presents to ambassadors accredited in Chisinau
Young persons that graduated from boarding schools will offer Christmas presents to the heads of diplomatic missions accredited in Moldova and will wish them enjoyable winter holidays.
Each ambassador will receive a packet containing a congratulation message and an original gift – a decorative hand-embroidered kerchief picturing the flag of the country represented by the respective diplomatic mission and the name of the ambassador. The action is part of the Donate Today for their Tomorrow Campaign, implemented by the Social Mission Diaconia, in partnership with the International Organisation for Migration.
Gifts from graduates of residential schools will be also distributed among a number of Moldovan companies, which will receive embroideries with their logos on them. In addition, the teenagers prepare similar presents for the media institutions that offered to promote the campaign free of charge.
According to the implementers, the intention of this action is to sensitise the recipients of these presents to the problems of the young people that once attended residential schools, while the young orphans aim to prove that they can truly become useful members of the society if they are offered the chance.
As part of the same project, the Social Mission Diaconia conducts a four-week fundraising campaign to support the young orphans that graduated from Moldovan residential school. The main goal of the campaign is to support the young orphans who are not allowed to dwell in the school’s dormitories and are offered no alternative dwelling in exchange once they have graduated from the boarding school.
All those willing to help these disadvantaged children can contribute financially by transferring money to the Mission’s bank account: M.S. Diaconia, c/f 40246014, c/d 225110000186757, BC VictoriaBank S.A. subsidiary N3, VICBMD2X416. Donations should be made until December 25.
According to a survey by UNICEF, most of the teenagers who graduate from residential schools in Moldova become victims of criminal organisations, a burden for the society or start a street life. Only few of them manage to integrate themselves into the society.
