Dear donors, 

On behalf of the seniors and Neoumanist staff  we would like to thank you for your continuous support of our project. We are glad to inform that the pandemic situation in Moldova is better now. We have less infected persons and about  12% of population are vaccinated.

Starting with 24 of May seniors have possibility to visit the center again. During the first week beneficiaries of the center discussed and discussed a lot with each other. We can observed how “thirsty ”of taking they were. Everybody was happy to see its friends and acknowledges. Finally the center get alive, the noise, the laugh, the activities the presents of the elderly warmed the atmosphere. In the last three months 3584 lunches were prepared and delivered, 2170 kg of laundry were washed, 247 elderly get psychological counseling in order to maintain their mental health and help to pass the consequences of the pandemic: isolation, frustration, vulnerability.

Today  seniors are the generation with no toys and joy  in the childhood. They pass the War, the Hungry and the deportations. They worth the respect of their rights and a dignity life.

By all our activities and services we  contribute to improve  the quality of their lives.

We kindly ask you to help us with our new project on GlobalGiving project: "Help 250+ Vulnerable Elderly in Moldova"

Neoumanist Association provides residential and medical care, home visits and day treatment to over 250 vulnerable elderly in the Straseni district of the Republic of Moldova. Our beneficiaries are typically impoverished and without family support and many are chronically ill and homebound. Funds raised will go to help meet their most basic needs and to fund programs at our center which include: hot meals, showers, laundry services and activities to support their emotional wellbeing.

You can visualize some of our activities and provided services in the photos attached to this report!

We are sure you will help us to provide a decent retirement period  for the vulnerable elderly in Moldova!

Thank you in advance!

Someone once said that whatever we possess becomes of double value when we share it with others. Looking around me at the difference your financial support has made to our organization, we know this is true!

Thank you all for helping and donating money for our project! We have anounced in our first report that the roof was finished due to the generosity af donors from all arround the world : Holland, United States, Croatia, Canada and other countries! GlobalGiving asked for a new report, so- Thank you again for your kindness and generosity!

Due to the generosity of both old friends and new, Sunrise now has a beautiful, sturdy roof constructed from safe materials that will ensure another twenty years of knitting, showering, lunching, gossiping, and soap operas for this large, thriving family of friends.  As we move toward winter and the holiday season, we will be seeking assistance for winter help for elderly.

We have posted a new project on GlobalGiving! We are sure you will be near us in supporting the elderly in need!

On any given weekday at the Neoumanist Sunrise Day Care Center, you will find the hallway filled with lively talk between friends as they store their belongings in the vestibule, catching up  with the latest news on gardens, grandchildren, and world events.   Some seat themselves around the entryway, greeting later arrivals, waiting for a turn at the shower or the washing machines.  Others move into the lounge, gathering around tables to knit, crochet, or focus on intricate needlepoint; a competitive game of cards in the back room is laced with belly laughs and good-natured teasing; the television is tuned to a Russian-language soap opera that holds a three elderly men rapt.  One employee is efficiently snipping a woman's silvery locks as she hums a traditional ballad, occasionally breaking into song.  A volunteer from Holland is carefully applying make-up to the upturned face of the woman seated next to her.  Meanwhile the massage therapist bounces into the room, calling for the next client.  The smell of cooking sarmale floats down from the kitchen, holding the promise of a warm, nutritious meal to come.

Sunrise is the hub for 250/ year, vulnerable seniors daily activities, the home away from home where they are always guaranteed to find conversation, hugs, laughter, and love. Over the past 12 years,  it has become an integral element of their mental and physical health, a lifeline that anchors them in a community. Yet this vibrant and essential haven had become increasingly threatened by the gradual deterioration of the center's roof, which was leaking water during the rains and allowing precious heated air to escape during the winter months.  Then, during the process of assessing the damage, the roof was discovered to contain asbestos, raising a further alarm for the health and safety of the beneficiaries and the staff. Something had to be done fast.

Fortuitously, around this time Neohumanist was invited to a presentation made by a Global Giving representative and learned about the online platform for reaching out to potential donors. We needed 20000 dollars to change the roof. Leveraging Facebook, our blog, email, and direct appeals to historic friends, we were able to raise over $5000 toward the roof replacement and work commenced on July 7. The rest of the needed amount was donated by our friends from Holland.

 Workers came from surrounding districts and stayed at the center for 4 weeks to ensure that the work was completed before the seasonal rains began.

The elderly are delighted with the new roof and they are very thankful to all the donors. Together, they created a poster as a gift for everyone who donated on our behalf.

Due to the generosity of both old friends and new, Sunrise now has a beautiful, sturdy roof constructed from safe materials that will ensure another twenty years of knitting, showering, lunching, gossiping, and soap operas for this large, thriving family of friends.  As we move toward winter and the holiday season, we will be seeking assistance for winter help for elderly.
