Youth and Students for Peace, Moldova
Young people from the Village Taraclia, Moldova, have been doing volunteer activities in their village for more than a year.
Some of them were:
1. Offering material and emotional help to elders by going into their houses. One of the participants wrote how much of a great pleasure it was to talk to them. Even though due to the rules stated because of the pandemic, the time spent would be short, the elderly would share their current state, business, etc. Some of them want to call the participants as often as possible. Many live alone, and their neighbors do not visit them or do not have one close. He felt like raising their mood to the maximum and giving a helping hand on what they need at home was a way to keep their heart stronger to go through this situation.
2. Help Families in difficult living conditions3. Intercultural events with youth.
Currently, they are carrying out a project titled Our Helping Hands, developed by one of the winners of the Peace Designer Program of IAYSP. Through this project, they want to bring joy to those in need offering them food, clothes, and talking to them.
Gathering hand in and, with the help of empathy and service, they desire to share their happiness with others.
