We provide contactless parcel delivery for single seniors and families at risk. In the COVID-19 pandemic, we limit visits to the elderly and children, which makes them the most vulnerable and vulnerable group of the population. Elderly aged people are prohibited from leaving the house without urgent need. In view of this. Volunteers provide home delivery of food, hygiene products and art kits.
Our friends with paws are known for their loving hearts and loyalty. Unfortunately, animals are not protected by law and people can be cruel to them. People bring a creature home, affected by emotions similar to ones they feel, buying a plush toy. List of their immoral actions is endless, but our team of volunteers decided to balance this unfairness. We started our marathon of love and care, because our little friends deserve it.
What does it mean?
During quarantine the Center is closed, that means that holding of all events and, consequently, voluntary activity are stopped, BUT!
We have always been saying that volunteering does not have limits and we are going to help online
Volunteer Center RVC from May 23 to June 6, 2021 joins the global Good Deeds Day movement – “Good Deeds Day”, which unites residents in more than 100 countries. Millions of people, thousands of organizations and companies around the world unite every year to help others free of charge RVC is the official representative of Good Deeds Day in Moldova.
During the period from 1 to 23 August, our volunteers took an active part in the action. Among other things, Moldovan manufacturers also respond to requests from the Republican Volunteer Center and provide support.
We are ready to share the successes achieved by RVC volunteers in August 2021
The team of the Republican Volunteer Center invites everyone: volunteers, the elderly, families and children to Rosh Hashanah “Apple Week”!
Every year at the end of August, the Republican Volunteer Center holds a “Bag to School” charity event, where everyone can help children get ready for school.
A day has passed for Volunteer Community Festival volunteers!
Not so long ago, the Healthy Vitamin Box project was launched at the volunteer center. The time has come to summarize the interim results.
From 23 to 25 July, an offsite educational seminar was held for volunteers of the Origins of Mercy project from Chisinau, Balti, Rybnitsa.
Achievements for the month of July from RVC volunteers from Chisinau, Ribnita and Balti!
Not long ago, the first educational seminar of this year for the new volunteers of the Call Center project took place.
My name is Alexander Chebotar. I am 30 years old. I moved to Chisinau from Tiraspol to study at the University; then I got a job here.
I like outdoor activities, I have many non-standard hobbies. Three years I attended the medieval reconstruction club and even nowadays sometimes I go there for skill training.
The first time I came to the Republican Volunteer Center at the request of my friend who asked me for help. Then I decided to get enrolled as a volunteer. I have been volunteering in the RVC for 7 months.
When I completed my first project, I had a sense of fulfillment, correctness and necessity of my actions. I like to take up the challenges in different fields, i.e. by helping children, the elderly or the environment. But playing with children, of course, is more fun!
I wish new volunteers to try something new and not be afraid to change their usual style of life!
“Hello everyone! My name is Ksyusha and I recently moved to the 11th grade. I have a lot of hobbies – I like to read, go and want to master the art of photography. Very soon it will be time to go to university and there will be much less free time there, so I decided to volunteer, now that I’ve considered all the options, I’ve decided to opt for our Center! I never regretted it!
I started my activity with online conferences with the elderly and visiting animal shelters. First of all, I really like animals and I chose online conferences because there is no way to be present in the city and volunteer offline.
I am interested in participating intensely in RVC offers, meeting new people, communicating and gaining experience. I also really want to do something good for people, to take care of children, of the elderly. Help the animals. I hope very soon, to know you better and to be friends for a long, long time! “
Hi! My name is Anya Doni and I am a volunteer. My first experience of volunteering was when I was still at school, when my friends and I made Christmas cards for children from an orphanage. And if we talk about a larger, serious project, I took part in the national conference against violence, where, by the way, the idea of a social project created at the Be Do Have summer school was born: “Spune NU Violeneiei”.
I started volunteering because I wanted to help children and do something good for them. At that stage of my life, I could almost say I was wearing pink glasses. Of course, I heard about violence, but it was somehow far from me and more was taken from films, books, and the topics raised at the conference, statistics and frightening facts greatly shocked me. As if I didn’t expect people to be so cruel, especially to children.
I am motivated by the desire to give my best to volunteer – my strength, time, energy, share my positive emotions, and help those who need it. And get positive emotions in return. This must be my dope! I believe that positive emotions are the key to a happy life.
Speaking about the projects I participated in, I immediately remember my sister’s participation in the project “School of life”. Masha asked me to give a lecture about sex education among teenagers. I spent this lesson, realized that I liked it, and most importantly, that the lecture was liked by the children! I also love working on my project “Spune NU violeneiei!” – this project aims to inform teenagers about different types of violence, as well as training them to recognize and respond to violence correctly.
One of the most striking recent events is the presentation of the project to the Summer school Be.Do. Have and receive a certificate from the KMB. I didn’t expect to get this certificate at all and, of course, when your work is appreciated, it is very pleasant. And the very defense of the project was very exciting for me, I was very worried, because I understood that all responsibility for the project lies with me, and since I did not have a team, I could not take into account some shortcomings.
Volunteering is not free work, as some say, but a process that changes the world for the better, and everyone may not feel it individually, but globally – it is, indeed, so!
I study in Lyceum “Ion și Doina Aldea-Teodorovici”. My Hobbies are very different: I like to walk with friends, listen to music, dance, and my favorite activity is drawing. In the future, I want to become an architect.
In addition to this, I decided to become a volunteer. I have always been interested in the problems that society faces. I also adhere to the principle: “One good thing is better than a thousand good words.”
I have been volunteering for more than a year and have never regretted my choice. My impression after the first volunteer action was: “I Want more!» For me, volunteering is a sea of beautiful emotions and the joy of helping someone. I am happy when I help other people and see their smiles.
RVC is not only a volunteer organization, but also very good friends, a large and wonderful team. Most of all, I like projects related to children and ecology. I participate in the project “give a smile”. The guys and I go to the V. Ignatenko hospital every Saturday. Communication with children brings me a great mood for the whole day and an unforgettable experience. In addition, this year I am taking part in the creation of a new project “Erasing borders”. For launching this project, I was awarded the “Volunteer of the year” award in the “Volunteer coordinator” category.
I wish my friends-volunteers more strength and inspiration for good deeds, and future volunteers – success in their volunteer activities! Become a volunteer and your life will stop seeming boring!

My name is Anastasia. I am 26. I am studying at “UTM” or at the Technical University of Moldova, as a marketer – logistician.
I accidentally found out about RVC. An acquaintance of mine worked as a coordinator at RVC. He invited me to the volunteer center.
– I have been volunteering for 6 months.
– Participated in the delivery of gifts, at master classes, as well as in the “Global Day” and in the action “Bring joy!”
– My main activity is calling the elderly and volunteers.
In volunteering, I see a lot of pleasant and useful things! For example, I have the opportunity to apply my skills and knowledge for good purposes, I meet very interesting people, thereby expanding my horizons, etc.
Elderly people are mostly very lonely … I didn’t have grandparents, but now I have a lot of them! (Happy) I try to support them, to listen. I am always happy when I hear laughter on the other end of the line!
Elderly people are grown-up children. Lovely and at the same time wise! This makes them very interesting to me.
One day, I called an elderly man. By my voice, I mistakenly thought that this was my geography teacher, but it turned out that this interesting lady had worked as a shoemaker for 30 years. Surprisingly, this is hard work, not for a woman! And also, this is a very necessary profession. But often people are not attracted to becoming a master …
I’m 17 years old. At the moment I’m not studying anywhere. I may say that my hobbies are learning English and doing sports. Moreover I enjoy philosophy and psychology.
About volunteering I’ve found out from my classmate but couldn’t decide to come to the Volunteer Center for a long time, because my free time was very limited. In February I’ve finally got this opportunity and I’ve decided to spend my free time with benefit. I like the possibilities which Volunteer Center provides. In addition to help people, I can develop my personality: gain new knowledge and communicate with interesting people. It is very valuable for me.
I take part in most of Center’s projects, but the most I enjoy the ones related to elderly. Communication with older people is a real pleasure for me.
Volunteering gives me invaluable experience and awesome memories. It has completely changed my life. I’ve become a different person, gained new knowledge and started to understand people better. I’m motivated by the fact that I may be useful for society and at the same time develop as an individual.
I’d like to wish volunteers not to lose faith in your favourite activity, but to improve yourself, to put your heart into the things you do, and to launch «The Boomerang of Good» which is going to return if you do it from your heart.
“Hello. My name is Ekaterina Labunets. I am 15 years old. I am in the 9th grade of the Theoretical Lyceum “George Călinescu”. My favorite activities are reading and spending time with people close and dear to me. I get pleasure when I can learn something new, as well as when I take part in projects that are new to me. The latter quality made me want to try myself as a volunteer.
For a long time I was looking for a volunteer center until I saw the publication of a friend about a volunteer action within the framework of the “Good Deeds Day” organized by RVC. After finding out more information, I decided to take part! For a month and a half I have been a volunteer in many of the Center’s projects.
The first project in which I took part was “Limba Noastră”. I really like it, I enjoy helping other people in learning Romanian.
At the same time, I had the opportunity to take part in other projects and actions, such as Healthy Vitamine Box, where together with other volunteers we delivered gifts specially prepared for them to the elderly. I still remember the sincere smiles and great gratitude of these people.
I enjoy volunteering and I don’t want to stop. This makes me happy and adds to the desire to make even more joy for the people around me. I want to get as much experience as possible in what I do: supporting the environment, working with children and the elderly. It makes me happy too. ”
The RVC team, in turn, is pleased to welcome Katya to our large and friendly volunteer family and to help achieve our goals.
This responsive young man volunteers with us with great pleasure, helping in various projects and promotions. Together with the team, Maxim visits the children of boarding school #3, entertaining them with interesting quizzes and competitions, and often participates in community events, helping with their organization. Most recently, he took part in the shooting of a documentary dedicated to the Victory Day. It is aimed at perpetuating the memories of those who gave us freedom once, fighting for our Homeland.
Maxim is studying at the Polytechnic College and is engaged in fireshow – how many talents are there in one person!
My name is Eсaterina Kalinkina. I am 16 years old. I study at the IT Technical School (CEITI). I speak two foreign languages: French and English.
I enjoy volunteering because I like doing good deeds and helping others!
I cannot say that a certain RVC project is my favorite because all of them are great and necessary, each in its own way. I volunteer in Give a Smile, SunRise, and Sources of Mercy projects.
RVC is a large and unite family where I feel really good. People here are always ready to help each other, are nice and friendly. It is a great pleasure to work with them!
Volunteer activities bring me positive emotions and motivate me to encourage others to help each other, especially, those in need.
Hello everyone! My name is Elena, I am 38 years old and I am a volunteer of the Republican Center! Behind me I have two higher educations: journalism and psychology. After them, I worked for a long time in a bank and a leasing company. Today I am working on my own online project on eco-bags.
In my free time I dance, paint and meditate. How did I become a part of the Russian Exhibition Center? Two years ago, I organized an event to clean up the capital’s park. Pavel came to the cleaning service, who at that time was a volunteer at the Russian Exhibition Center in the “Clean Chisinau” project, and it was he who introduced me to the Center. For two years I took an active part in the “Clean Chisinau” project, and during the pandemic I decided to join the delivery of packages / products for the elderly. At the Center, I found like-minded people whom I did not find in my environment. I am convinced that making the world a better place is much easier for all together, as a team, than alone. I also really enjoy working with the coordinators of the RVC, they manage to gather and organize everyone, it motivates and inspires. And the girls working there are very cool and perky in themselves. For me, everything that happens in the Center is something absolutely amazing, so I cannot mention any one story.
Hi! My name is Lily, I am developing web design for mobile applications. I am a graphic designer by profession. I love active recreation, Hiking on mountain trails, I love to travel, this inspires me to new projects and their implementation. I also walk my videos sometimes.
I got into RVC thanks to your Facebook page and invitations to participate in events. As soon as I had time, I remembered that I wanted to devote it to helping people together with the team of the volunteer center. I myself have been engaged in volunteer activities for more than 9 years. But I like to do this more in RVC, because here your participation is encouraged, and this moves you forward, motivates you to develop further and, not least, encourages you to invite others. In short, I like the level that is supported here!
I continue to be a volunteer, because to be useful to someone, for me – it is to improve, create, influence, help – it is a continuous chain. I like it when people try to change for the better, or find answers to their questions when they turn to me for help, advice, or request.
If we talk about motivation, it is probably, in a sense, a miracle that happens when the right people find the right people. Have you watched the movie “Stars on earth”? The main character-a boy is forced to endure bullying until he finds the right (knowledgeable and not indifferent) teacher, who finds the reason and correctly explains it and everything falls into place. I’m motivated by meeting people and how we influence each other.
I try to participate in all projects, but the closest, of course, are those related to nature, its preservation, ecology. I also like projects that focus on training and development, both for the younger generation and the elderly.I believe that development is an important process in our life that needs a lot of attention. And projects related to creativity, transformation into the new, because through them people learn to see beauty.
One of the most striking events for me was the photo exhibition “Past Now”, with the participation of older people. The shots were represented by their transformation into their best version. Also at the exhibition, everyone could try out innovations in the field of mobile technologies and games. In fact, there was something memorable in every meeting, event, and a lot of love, knowledge, time, and work was invested in each event!
I want to wish the Republican Volunteer Center to become even better! Even more interesting! Create a lot of projects that are important to bring to life!
Thank you, you are great!!!

Hello everyone My name is Yanaki Ilona, I am 17 years old and I am a volunteer!
I study at the Lyceum “Olymp”, and I also study English. I love languages, and would like to know a few) My Hobbies are music, reading, and psychology.
I first came to the RVC at the age of 15, I was inspired by projects, friendly atmosphere and volunteering itself, so since June 2018, I started volunteering and helping people!
We have a lot of cool, unusual, interesting projects, most of all I like the ideas of projects: “Creation Space “ – which is aimed at developing public speaking skills, gaining self-confidence, as well as the” happy women’s Club”, where women are made happy, hold interesting and useful lectures, introduce them to various specialists who can help them with practical advice. It’s great, isn’t it?.
But my favorite project is, of course, #Myself!)
The project ” Myself” works with children, teaches them how to behave in different situations, safety! I take an active part in this project and get a lot of pleasure from working with children! I also participate in projects: “Do good”; “Creation space”; Yasam; Shabbat NES, Birthday Day.
I would like to wish the volunteers inspiration, strength, and success in all their endeavors!
My name is Seryozha, I am a 4th-year student at the Financial and banking College. I like to play mind games, go out with friends, and travel.
I decided to join the volunteer center after the volunteer job Fair. Since then, I have been volunteering for six months. I still remember my thoughts when I first got into RVC: “it’s fun Here!”
I am motivated by the mood with which the volunteers do their work. With this positive attitude, we can do a lot to change life in the country for the better!
I participate in the project “give a smile”, where I help children in hospitals to distract from their illness and enjoy life. A team of volunteers and I conduct master classes and play games for them. Communication with children brings a lot of fun, and their smiles are the best gift for me!
I would advise all new volunteers to try themselves in each project and find the one that suits them perfectly.
My name is Pasha Kramarenko. I am a first-year student of the faculty of food industry at the Polytechnic University. I decided to become a volunteer after the “volunteer job Fair”, where I got acquainted with several projects that were particularly interesting for me. One of them was “give me a smile”. On the first trip, I had a great time playing with the children, and decided to continue working in the project. So I’ve been volunteering for two years now. Now I work in the projects “repair School”, “give a smile”, “eyewitness Theater” and “Stay-Fit”. The volunteer center has become for me a place where you can realize yourself and your creative skills, and there is always an opportunity to try something new.
My favorite project is still “give me a smile”. This project is especially motivating for me, because every time I go to the children, they charge me with endless positive energy, which is sometimes so lacking in everyday life.
For those who are planning to become a volunteer, I want to say that RVC has a huge selection of projects for almost everyone, regardless of age and degree of employment.
My name is Olya, I am 16 years old. I am a student of the 10th grade of the the Teoretical Lyceum “Universul”. I decided to become a volunteer because I had a lot of free time. I needed something to occupy it, and I realized that there was no point in wasting it when I could benefit the community and the city I live in.
I have been working as a volunteer for three months. At RVC, I was accepted by friendly coordinators and no less friendly guys-volunteers. Everyone here is very nice, funny and kind. I immediately felt the support from them, and I realized that I had found my place.
The first project I participated in was a trip to The V. Ignatenko children’s hospital. It left a lot of positive emotions and memories. What motivates me to volunteer is that now I have the opportunity to benefit others and get incredible pleasure from it. RVC gives me a huge selection of projects that I can participate in, and for that, thank you so much to the coordinators! I’m involved in almost all existing projects, but I’m probably closest to helping the elderly. Communicating with them gives me invaluable experience and knowledge, which I, in turn, pass on to my peers. I want to wish the volunteers patience, and those who want to become them – to be bolder and act!
I started volunteering on the 1st of August of the previous year. I and my friend were playing computer game and suddenly he said: «I want to do something useful for society.» The next day he came ta RVC, registered and asked me to join him, saying that it’s better than spending summer next to computer.
My first volunteer experience was at action where I was delivering basic household chemicals to older people. And then I continued my volunteer activity! I’ve begun taking part in a project connected with my college’s specialty (I study at College of Building)
It was «School of Repair» project, where I have spent the most time. Besides this one I’ve participated in almost every project except for the ones connected with kids.
The greatest impression was «Volunteer of the Year» Awards Ceremony 2018: staying on the stage I was proud of myself, I’ve had 137 hours of volunteering during 5 months (August-December).
A lot of people are afraid of coming to the Volunteer Center because: 1) it’s difficult 2) I don’t have enough time 3) «I don’t want, what will I do there?». Sincerely, I am not going to persuade people, because this desire should be from the heart. If you want to socialize, help people and be useful for society, come to RVC, I’m sure you are going to like it and won’t regret!
My name is Irina, I am 57 years old. I am a retired engineer, accountant, and administrator. I like to lead an active lifestyle and be creative. I am also engaged in volunteering for the third year. I am always happy to help people, and now I can pay more attention to this, because I have free time and opportunities. At RVC, I was attracted by the interest in new activities and an existing organization that I saw great potential in. I am inspired to continue my active volunteer work by people who need my help, as well as the support of my beloved daughter and like-minded people. From the very beginning, I chose to help the elderly. I am interested in learning and developing in this field, giving joy and hope. My advice to new volunteers is to look around and find those who need your help, and then start giving a piece of yourself, your time, and your soul.
