I am 38 years old and I am a volunteer at the Russian Exhibition Center! Behind two higher educations (journalism and psychology), work in a bank and a leasing company. Today I am working on one online project. I have my own mini-project on eco-bags, which I am actively promoting. I dance, paint and meditate.
Two years ago I created an event for cleaning the capital’s park, Pavel also came to clean up (at that time he was a volunteer at the Russian Exhibition Center in the Chisinau Chisinau project), he introduced me to the Russian Exhibition Center. For two years I have been in the Pure Chisinau project, and in the pandemic I also joined in the delivery of packages for the elderly.
At the Russian Exhibition Center, I met like-minded people whom I could not find in my friends’ space. And this is a key point for me: together to make the world a better place is much easier and faster than alone. I like working with the administrative staff of the RVTs, the organizational level is very good and the girls are very cool and perky)
(I don’t remember very much stories to capture the spirit of interest) I was somehow impressed by our cleaning in Butoyash Park, garbage can be different and what we just don’t collect: from bottles to underwear accessories, pillows with hair, but the TV I have not yet seen in the depths of the park. I was impressed by the fact that someone brought him there on purpose and for the sake of which it is not clear) Or in the same park there was a mound, it seemed to be neat around it, and behind the hillock, there were so many plastic bottles that there were so many of them that almost all of our bags were gone on them, and there were many of them.

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.
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!
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.
My name is Jenea. I study at the State University of Moldova at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science.
I like working with people but my profession does not imply this; that is why I decided to become a volunteer. When I was new at the RVC, I faced a lot of challenges. I had to overcome the fear I felt and to go on, for the sake of self-development. Step by step, I met new people, heard new stories and found new opportunities. I get motivation from the team I work with, enjoy volunteer activities and feel happy when we help others, and from the emotions we share with the people we help.
Children are open-hearted and very sincere, I like working with them most of all. I wish all volunteers to do what gives them energy and strength. I believe that only by becoming more meaningful and confident you can make other people happy.
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!
“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! “
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 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!
My name is Masha, I am 24 years old. I graduated from the Technical University with a degree in design and printing technologies. Currently I work as an Illustrator of children’s books, and also develop layouts for various products. My Hobbies are creating handmade greeting cards and singing in the choir. Another favorite activity for me is volunteering. While still at school, I started participating in various volunteer actions, mostly related to ecology. A year ago I learned about the volunteer center and connected to the participation in various projects. I decided to start volunteering again, because I truly believe that it can change many things for the better, both in our country and in the world as a whole. At a certain point, volunteering became a way of life for me, an activity that brings a lot of positive emotions to my life. The most valuable and pleasant thing for me about volunteering is the smiles on people’s faces, gratitude for their attention, and the many stories they tell us. Most of all, I remember the Day of Good Deeds 2016, which was the beginning of my volunteer work in the RVC team. I felt myself involved in an important and significant event, I felt surrounded by an atmosphere of friendship and kindness.
I would advise people who are just going to start volunteering as soon as possible! Put aside your fears, doubts, and excuses and just take this step. Volunteering guarantees an indescribable experience. It can change not only the lives of others, but also your own!
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!
A volunteer is a state of mind. The desire to do good, help people and make the world around you a better place. Age, profession in this case are not at all important, because the main thing is a sincere impulse.
Today our hero is Albina Borimechkova. Albina is 44 years old. Works as an office manager in a car service company.
“For many years I, together with my mother and family, participated in KEDEM’s events. I knew about the activities of the RVC for a long time and took part in one-time actions. I consciously started volunteering this year, decided that I want to devote more time to this. At the moment I am engaged in helping the elderly, being part of the Call-Center project. I am also ready to participate in other projects in this direction, as well as in the framework of the “Origins of Mercy”.
What motivates you? I would like to give good, to devote time and attention. Volunteering was brought up in me by my mother and I want to continue by my example to bring up a sense of care and responsibility for other people in my children.
Of course, in volunteering, you can’t do without funny stories. Once a funny situation happened to us. One granny gave me and the children clothes from her chest. And we had to dress like children from the dungeon every time we met to please her.
I am sure that volunteering is important. It is important for our society, for people. It develops a sense of responsibility, educates a person in you – very important qualities in modern society “
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!
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!
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 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 …
This year, she has attended a number of workshops for volunteer coordinators, and has already managed to apply the knowledge she gained. She attended Be.Do.Have Summer School and launched a project called Happy Women’s Club which has become very popular. She also attended a very interesting workathon in Mykolaiv, Ukraine (a 3-day workshop at which volunteers solve different social problems in a very short period of time).
She is very enthusiastic about such a great experience, about working in such a wonderful team and all the good deeds she has managed to do for the past year.
Now, Marina needs a new portion of inspiration for new projects!
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.
I graduated from the Kishinev transport College with a degree in Computer diagnostics and homologation of vehicles.I am currently engaged in diagnostics, repair, and configuration of computers. I don’t have a permanent job, so I pay a lot of attention to my Hobbies. In my free time, I play guitar, create music, and repair bicycles. Sometimes I work part-time shooting and processing photos, making short videos about the architecture of the city.
For me, volunteering is an exceptional opportunity to bring gratuitous benefits to people of any age, social status and religion. I became a volunteer in the fall of 2015. The first volunteer project I took part in was the “Clean Chisinau”project. After just one project, I felt a certain need to devote myself to helping others. My second project was a trip to the Island of hope animal shelter. Together with the volunteers, we brought a lot of necessary things for keeping animals, food, and also helped to clean the territory of the shelter. After that, I was invited to the project”repair School”. Here my skills in repairing household appliances came in handy. We helped the elderly by repairing old things, fixing Windows for winter, repairing furniture, and much more. In the implementation of these tasks, we were greatly helped by the repair classes held in the RVC.
In fact, each of my participation in a particular project is memorable in itself. When I get involved in a new project for the first time, I remember everything in detail, because everything is new and interesting for me at this moment.
I believe that it is best to volunteer to come with them. Advice from friends and invitations from acquaintances do not guarantee that you will be interested in doing this in the future. Another thing is when your inner volunteer just bursts out and encourages you to do good. And if you feel that very volunteer inside you-come to us!
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.
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. 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.
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.

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”.

Hey everyone! My name’s Kikioi Alina and I’m a volunteer from RVC!
I’ve become a volunteer due to my classmate. Once he offered me to come with him to the project because his partner couldn’t come, that’s why I’ve agreed. Sincerely, I had no idea even where I was going and why. Only when we started our way I’ve found out that I take part in «School of Repair» project and I should help Vova to fix some stuff. This is how my volunteer story has begun…
I liked to communicate with older people so the next day I’ve come to RVC and registered as a volunteer.
The elderly lady, who we had visited with Vova encouraged me to take this step. She was so happy when we arrived, it was so pleasant to talk with her and the most important thing – we wanted to help her. That was the moment when I felt that I’m needed.
In RVC I like the most that we, who are a young team, have an opportunity to make our ideas real. Also I appreciate the Center’s support, especially the coordinators’ one, who are always ready to help us.
About motivation – everything is simple – I don’t need it! I don’t need a special thought which is going to help me moving forward. I’ve become a volunteer consciously and I dedicate myself to this activity with great pleasure.
In general, I work with children, that is why I take part in projects «New Life of an Item», «School of Life», «Birthday child» and in a new one «Eco-friendly kids edition».
I don’t have a favourite project, because all of them are amazing, but the closest one for me is «New Life of an Item» because it was the first my project, it gave me my first volunteer experience and helped me to meet new people.
The greatest event was Summer School Be.Do.Have. I registered at RVC right after the Summer School had ended, so I had been waiting for a year to go there. When it has finally happened was the happiest person! Be.Do.Have gave me a lot of new knowledge and experience, new friends and pleasant memories.
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.
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 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.
My name is Elena. I came to Chisinau from the North of Moldova, from the city of Riscani, where I graduated from the Lyceum “Liviu Damian”. In 2015, I entered the State University of medicine and pharmacology. Nikolay Testemitsanu to the faculty of General medicine. I am now in my second year.
In my free time, I like to listen to jazz and instrumental music, as well as read classical English literature. When the mood is conducive to creativity, I like to write poetry.I also like active recreation: football, tennis, volleyball, walking.
Since childhood, I have believed that helping others is one of the most important and noble things to do. The Republican Volunteer center gave me the opportunity to do this. My love for children has led me to a wonderful project “give me a Smile”, in which I participate every weekend.
The most exciting moment in my volunteer work was the first visit to The V. Ignatenko children’s hospital, when I met a cute four-year-old girl. At first it was hard to make contact, and then suddenly it touched my hand with its small hand. At that moment, I realized that she trusted me, and communication went much easier. Every time we visit The V. Ignatenko children’s hospital or the Institute of Oncology with a team of volunteers, there are many moments that remain in our memory for a long time.
For me, volunteering means deep feelings, sincere emotions, and communication with worthy people. This is a part of my life, an opportunity to help people around me, to be more attentive, to develop a sense of tact and the ability to see positive aspects in everything that surrounds me. Looking into the sad eyes of children, seeing their patience and perseverance in the struggle for life, I learn to live and appreciate every minute, to be strong and purposeful.
I believe that being a volunteer is a choice that is driven by different factors. In my case, it was altruism. Everyone makes this choice based on their values and worldview, but it must come from the heart.
If good deeds make you at least a little happier, then we are waiting for you in our team!

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 Vika, I study at the theoretical Lyceum im. Natalia Dadiani. In my free time, I like to listen to music, read, dance and play sports. I came to the volunteer center thanks to my friends, to whom I am very grateful. I got into RVC 4 months ago and already realized how wonderful it is to do good. My friends-volunteers, kind and friendly coordinators became my second family. It’s nice to come back here again and again every day!
In my volunteer work, I am motivated by the smiles of the people I help. Most often, these are elderly people who live alone. That’s why bringing them joy is very valuable to me. I participate in the projects ” Shabbat at home “(I meet Shabbat with elderly Jews) and “repair School” (I do small household repairs in the homes of grandparents).
I want to wish new volunteers not to be afraid of anything and come to the volunteer center to realize themselves and do good!
My name is Vadim. I grew up in Chisinau, and graduated in 2016 from Moscow (NRU MGSU) with a degree in construction. Recently, I have been working on a construction site where I do various jobs. I spend my free time playing sports and some Hobbies, including volunteering.
Anyway, I’ve probably been doing volunteer work all my life. But I started developing in this area recently when I met the RVC team.
For me, volunteering is a way to make society better and people around me kinder to others and the world in General.
There is no particularly memorable moment from my volunteer experience as such. But every time I help someone, I am charged with positive energy. Volunteering helps me deal with negative thinking and to make people happy.
For those who are just going to become a volunteer, I would like to advise you to make this decision with your heart, not your brain. Only then will it give you pleasure. Also, support those who want to volunteer, don’t judge them. This is an incredibly useful activity for society. the more such people there are, the better it is for each of us to live in peace.
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.
