Moldavia: Achievements thanks to Christmas Initiative

Even as recently as last year, it was unimaginable that Nikita would ever be able to leave his wheelchair.

At the end of 2017, many readers of the newspaper in Recklinghausen donated money to the children and youth of Moldavia who live in poverty. Very few of these children can attend school. With the help of these generous donations, several new projects could be supported, and the young boy Nikita literally now has the world at his feet.

Support for the Social Center Lazarus

Since its opening in 2002, the social center Lazarus in Bucharest has become an important contact point for children and adolescents living on the streets. In the center, they can receive medical treatment, meals, clothing and a place to sleep.

Craft, sport and music programs exist for the children that reside in the social center. They can visit the kindergarten or go to school.  Young mothers that live on the streets with their children are also welcomed.

A playground and a sporting facility also belong to the social center.  In total, 100 children and adolescents can sleep at the center.

In the past year, the UNESCO Foundation has again supported the CONCORDIA organization in their work; in 2011 specifically the social center Lazarus.
