Sasha Chubatyuk


My name is Sasha Chubatyuk. I am 29 years old. I am a University student and a volunteer.

My first volunteer experience was last year in April, on Good Deeds Day. I like helping people in various ways.


I volunteer in the Repair School and in the Sources of Mercy projects. I care for the elderly, go shopping with them and help them within the framework of different community service projects.

I am driven by the idea that I do good deeds, help people meet their needs, and this motivates me to continue volunteering.


When I think of the benefits my volunteer activities bring to these people, I feel motivated to go on, of course, together with other volunteers, whom I wish success, strength, and inspiration!

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!

Croitor Yaroslava
Croitor Yaroslava

Hello! My name is Yaroslava, I am 16 years old and I study in the 10th form of the Theoretical Lyceum “Alexander Pushkin”.

I enjoy playing the piano, playing sports and writing articles, as I dream of becoming a journalist. A year ago I became interested in volunteering, the war that started in a neighboring country played a big role in this. From February to July 2022, my mother and I actively helped refugees. We prepared a large amount of food and delivered it to those in need. Then I became interested in whether we have volunteer organizations in Moldova and remembered the RVC, which my friend told me about.

First, I got into the “School of Volunteers”, where I learned from the coordinators what the Republican Volunteer Center is. I liked it right away. I realized that here I can develop myself, learn and gain new skills, communicate and help people, which is what I always wanted. I have been at the RVC for a year now, during which time I managed to try myself in various projects. Most of all I like “Call Center”, as well as projects related to children. One of the projects that I lead is “Talking English”, where I teach children English in an interactive way.

During my activity there were many interesting cases, but most of all I remember the case from the “Clean Chisinau” project. Then we were cleaning the “Eight” park and collected about 15 bags of garbage. We had a real quest to get garbage out of the lake. We understood that it would not be possible to clean everything. Then a man who had nothing to do with volunteering came to help us. He literally climbed into the lake and helped us pull out a large number of bottles and other debris. After the action, we were glad that we managed to clean up the park a little and make it more pleasant. Being engaged in volunteer activities, I feel useful, I feel that people need my help and I believe that volunteering is my calling!

Roman Raspopa
Roman Raspopa

My name is Roman Raspopa, I am 17 years old. I study at the “Children’s Academy” school. I learned about RVC through my classmates, the guys talked about the projects of the Center and I wanted to join such a cool movement.
I have been volunteering for 10 months, during this time I made new acquaintances, made friends with other volunteers and coordinators. Today I call, inform and interview the elderly, and also cheer them up. The latter is my favorite. I love to tell interesting stories and, most importantly, listen to the same stories in return. People of the golden age have a lot of life experience and a storehouse of stories that you want to listen to more and more.
As I said above, what I like most about the volunteer movement is communication and meeting new people. Most of all I was surprised by the Jewish holidays, because I did not know anything about them before. In just 10 months of my volunteering, I filled in all these gaps, learned national holidays, learned more from the history of the Jewish people, and also took part in Shabbat.
Being a volunteer at the RVC means being part of a big family that wants to make this world a little better. And this is great!

Britkova Natalia
Britkova Natalia

I am Nata Britkova. I am 33 years old, I am a director, theater and film actress. As a teenager, volunteering and non-formal education attracted my curious attention. For all the years that I was engaged in volunteering in various organizations, participated in various projects, both in Moldova and abroad, it turned out that the RVC was the best thing that could happen to me!

My volunteer work began after Good Deeds Day in 2022. Then I gradually began to get acquainted with the projects, and there were quite a lot of them at the RVC, and I wanted to take part in each of them. An interesting fact is that my teacher, an acting coach of the improvisation format, has Jewish roots, but before that I had little knowledge of Jewish culture. Thanks to the RVC, she began to get involved in educational meetings and seminars, thereby learning more about the holidays and traditions of the Jewish people.

The Republican Volunteer Center is a platform that allows you not only to help, but also to develop yourself and your abilities, and since I have knowledge of acting, I decided to create the IMPROart project. Some time later, after attending the Network of Volunteer Coordinators workshop, I became its co-coordinator. This project is about the art of improvisation, theater and cinema, which allows all volunteers to reveal their talents. Thanks to the volunteer center, I have the opportunity to continue the work of my teacher and her sister, who, as a person of science, also took part in the development of improvisation.

In addition to the mentioned project, I actively participate in environmental events, conduct team building events for volunteers and am a member of the logistics team, thereby developing my creative and creative visions to help the coordinators create unforgettable events.

I am proud to be a volunteer of the RVC! Volunteering is about real life!

Shcherbatov Linda
Shcherbatov Linda

Hi all!
My name is Linda Shcherbatova, I am 35 years old. I am a studied catering technologist-designer.
At the age of 15, I joined the Jewish Cultural Center “KEDEM” and began to expand my educational horizons.

Volunteering has always held a special place in my heart, thanks to my parents and grandparents who raised me the right way.

At the moment I am participating in the project “The Origins of Mercy”, which brings me joy, especially considering that my grandmother Greta is far away from me, because due to circumstances she had to move to another country. Often I meet older people who resemble my loved ones Greta and Izya. Their manners, habits or appearance give the impression that my relatives are next to me.

What does it mean to be a volunteer?

This is a moment of sincerity when you lend a helping hand in any situation. It is a manifestation of gratitude when you accept the arms of a person who has lived for many years. In their eyes you see only positive emotions accumulated over the years of life, and upon returning home you feel the aroma of the velvet skin of their hands.
Being a volunteer makes me proud! This is a charge of positive emotions in our difficult time!

Neznaiko Vladimir
Neznaiko Vladimir

My name is Vladimir Neznaiko, I am a student of the Anton Chekhov POTL and I am an active participant in the volunteer movement at the Republican Volunteer Center (RVC).

My story began when I accidentally found out about RVC through my friends. I was looking for ways to get involved in charitable causes and help those in need when I came across information about RVC volunteering. This was a great opportunity for me to do a good deed and contribute to public life.

More than six months have passed since then, and I continue to actively participate in various RVC events. I helped with logistics at various mass events, participated in the organization of Good Deeds Day 2023, collected food for the people in need, organized and hosted classes for children and much more.

Why RVC? In this volunteer center, a huge number of projects are focused on helping members of the Jewish community, and here I can get closer to the culture of the Jewish people. My great-grandparents were Jewish, but like most stories from that time, their papers have been weathered, blown away by the winds of time, and eventually lost. By helping out on RVC projects, I can be closer to my historical roots.

I like the volunteer movement for its diversity, emotional involvement, and depth. Here I meet many different people, work in a team with like-minded people, learn about different cultures and social problems. It makes my life more meaningful and more interesting.

What I especially appreciate in the volunteer movement is that here I can contribute to solving social problems and help people in difficult life situations. It gives me a sense of satisfaction and pride in my contribution to the common good.

I am sure that the volunteer movement is useful not only for society, but also for the volunteers themselves. It helps to develop and expand horizons, set new goals and achieve them. I believe that each person can contribute to the common cause and become better, and volunteering is one of the most effective ways to do this.

Cheprasova Irina

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.

Neagu Elena
Neagu Elena

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.

Igor Perchun
Igor Perchun

Good afternoon, my name is Igor Perchun and I am 50 years old. I own my own business, but due to the quarantine, I suspended the work of my enterprise in order to protect my employees. I joined the RVC recently. Having learned about the need to participate in the delivery of humanitarian aid and meals for the elderly, I realized that I could and should help. I deliver meals for the elderly, and also participate in the delivery of humanitarian aid as a driver, and I feel that my help is needed now more than ever. First of all, I like the activity and responsiveness of the coordinators of the Volunteer Center. They seem to work for two, or even three at once. I believe that this kind of adaptation to the conditions is necessary. Help must be provided and if volunteers are able to help people at a distance, it only warms my soul. I believe that the world needs good deeds. I myself was the most active pioneer, and from childhood I remember that the weak and needy need help. That is why now I am trying to make the world a better place and make my own modest contribution to the common good.

Garbolinskaya Oksana
Garbolinskaya Oksana

Hi all! My name is Victoria, I am 28 years old. For more than 8 years I have been a volunteer in the Republican Volunteer Center. There was a time when I came here from time to time, but in 2019 I returned to volunteering in full force by participating in the Good Deeds Day. I believe that such large-scale events are a very convenient and suitable opportunity for those who want to try their hand at volunteering.

I do volunteer work in my free time from my full-time job and other hobbies. I love creativity and I coordinate 2 wonderful projects: “IT Grandmother”, where my friends, colleagues, and I teach older people computer skills, and “Our hands can do everything” – art workshops where everyone can try new techniques or remember what he once knew. Master classes are held online for both volunteers and elderly clients of Hesed.

For me, volunteering is not only mutual assistance, but also an opportunity for self-development and communication. Everyone can share their knowledge and skills, even if they are not an expert or a master. Every contribution is important, no matter how small it is. I believe that such an atmosphere reigns in the Republican Volunteer Center, and this is one of the reasons why we all love this organization so much. The second reason is the connection with Jewish traditions, culture and community. This is exactly the place that allows me to be closer to my roots!

Grow and help make this world a better place!

Mititelu Valentina
Mititelu Valentina

Hi all! My name is Mititelu Valentina, I am 16 years old and I am a first-year student at a teacher training college.

I learned about the Republican Volunteer Center from my friend and started volunteering almost two years ago. My first project was called “Limba Noastră” where I taught Romanian to children. Participation in this project helped me become more punctual and responsible, as I realized that I have obligations that I should fulfill.

In the volunteer movement, I especially like communication with different people, regardless of their age and interests. I love to learn something new and develop, as well as help people and see their smiles after helping. During my participation in the projects, I met a lot of wonderful people and there were many pleasant stories. One of them happened during the delivery of new phones.
To old people. We helped them figure it out by explaining how each program worked. It was very interesting to listen to their stories that happened to them throughout their lives, and it’s very nice to see smiles and joy on their faces. I understood that our communication was necessary for the elderly, and it brought pleasure to both of us.

I am proud of my decision to become a volunteer at the Republican Volunteer Center, and I do not regret my choice at all. Activities at the RVC brought me new knowledge, a large number of interesting acquaintances and vast experience of working with people.

Gandrabur Vyacheslav
Gandrabur Vyacheslav

Hi all! My name is Vyacheslav Gandrabur, I am 18 years old and I study at the International Lyceum in Chisinau. I love sports, especially football, as well as computer technology and programming.

I learned about the Republican Volunteer Center from friends and classmates who shared their positive and interesting experience with me. I decided to learn what it means to be a volunteer, thus discovering new skills and unforgettable experiences. My main project at the RVC is “How does it work?”, which is aimed at educating children. I tell the youngsters about the history and principles of work of various objects around us.

However, my volunteer work began with the “Do Good” campaign, the purpose of which was to create and conduct presentations about volunteering for schoolchildren and students. The emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic has seriously affected the activities of volunteers. The approach to planning and holding events and lessons has changed. That is why I led the project “How does it work?” for a long time in an online format, which, of course, had its pros and cons. Luckily, with new volunteers and the reduced risk of Covid-19, we now have the opportunity to conduct classes in person, which makes classes even more fun.

In my opinion, the most beautiful thing in the volunteer movement is emotions.I am pleased not only with my own positive emotions from volunteering, but also with the emotions of those people to whom I help. I also like that volunteering gives you the opportunity to gain social experience and develop other unique skills that can greatly help in everyday life. Volunteering is awesome!

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.


Anastasia Stratan
Anastasia Stratan

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 …

Makovskaya Alena
Makovskaya Alena

My name is Alyona, I’m in the 12th grade at the “Petru Movilă” lyceum. I have always been interested in volunteering, because I wanted to help people, and I had always possessed the most important resources for this: time and desire.

I started looking into volunteer centers and came across the Republican Volunteer Center (RVC). By the end of the summer, I filled out a registration form and was invited for an interview. This is how my volunteer journey began. At the moment I am participating in a project for children “How does it work?”. In the classroom, I talk in a manner that is interesting for children about the work of the human body. I also work with older people in the “IT POP” project, which aims to teach mobile literacy to Hesed’s wards.

What I like about RVC is that absolutely everyone can find an outlet of expression for themselves here, as there are many projects for different age groups and interests. Volunteers are also not forgotten, for whom many educational seminars, training and master classes are held. I also want to note the coordinators who are always ready to help and make you feel at home as much as possible.

I really enjoy being a volunteer and I’m glad to be a part of RVC!

Melnichenko Sergey
Melnichenko Sergey

Hello everyone, my name is Sergey Melnichenko, I am 19 years old and I am studying at the University of Economics. Before I found out about the RVC, I visited the Haverim youth platform, where on one of the Sabbaths I was offered to join the volunteer center. After some time, I decided to join the ranks of volunteers. I have always believed that I can help the world, although not on a global scale, but still somehow make it better little by little.

I joined the RVC team about six months ago and managed to participate in a variety of activities. At the moment, I mainly work in the ITKIDS project, where I teach computer literacy and IT skills to children, but in the future I am ready to try myself in other areas. Also, sometimes I participate in the delivery of food packages for the elderly and in environmental campaigns.

What I like about volunteering is that everything is done from the heart. I do what I love and as a results I bring joy to others as well as myself. It is like a reward to see smiles on their faces. Nothing compares to the true happiness of a person. I believe that kindness can save this world. I hope that I will be able to do what I truly love for a long time.

Volunteering teaches a lot. For example, once at the ITKIDS project, I was supposed to be replaced for a day, but the volunteers could not come. In such a situation, I had to quickly react and find a way to fix the situation and fortunately everything went smoothly. This experience taught me to always have a back up plan.


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!!!

Ana Doni
Ana Doni

My name is Anya Doni and I am a volunteer. My first experience of volunteering was at school, my guys and I made New Year’s cards for children from the orphanage. And if we talk about a larger, serious project, then I took part in a 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 Violenței”.
I was inspired to volunteer by the desire to help children, to do something good for them. At that stage of my life, I could say, it was like wearing pink glasses. Of course, I heard about violence, but it was somehow far from me and was taken more from films, books, and the topics raised at the conference, statistics and frightening facts greatly shocked me. As if I hadn’t expected that people can be so cruel, especially towards children.
I am motivated to volunteer most of all by the desire to give – strength, time, my energy, to share my positive, to help those who need it. And get positive emotions in return. This is probably my dope! I believe that positive emotions are the key to a happy life. Speaking about the projects in which I have participated, 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 gave this lesson, realized that I liked it, and most importantly, that the children liked the lecture! I also really enjoy working on my project “Spune NU violenței!” – this project is aimed at informing adolescents about different types of violence, as well as learning to recognize and respond to violence. One of the most striking recent events is the presentation of the project to the Summer School Be.Do. Have and obtaining a certificate from KMB. I didn’t expect to receive this certificate at all and, of course, when your work is appreciated, it’s very nice. 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 lay with me, and since I did not have a team, I could not take into account some shortcomings.

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.


Valery Albu
Valery Albu

Hey! I am 20 years old. I am a student, UTM, Electricity.

I learned about the RVC from a young man who was already an active volunteer for the center. Detachment began in July 2020 – she delivered hot meals to lonely, sedentary elderly.Today she is an active volunteer of the CALL CENTER – she is informing the elderly in Chisinau and the regions about RVC projects and the epidemiological situation in the country, helps with the delivery of food to lonely elderly people and congratulates them on the holidays.

Volunteering attracts her with a variety of stories, destinies of older people. With the usual planned informing of the elderly, I got acquainted with the stories of dozens of heads and grandfathers. Hearing various interesting stories from the elderly is one of the main motivators of her activity. For example, my grandmother, when calling, told about her occupation back in the Soviet Union. About how she was a mechanic, how much this profession fascinated her and how much she misses that time. Such short and insignificant, at first glance, things, but they make Leroux think about her profession, about how important it is to love what you do and truly get carried away with your craft and constantly grow and develop professionally.
