Greetings dear friends! we have some great news: Our Christmas campaign was initiated to help implement our Mentoring program, but in December we had the pleasant opportunity to create new friendships through which we managed to bring a smile to some children who need us so much. Specifically, we managed to distribute donations received from Mara Woman, EduJoc and Olsa Shoes to 9 families (30 children total). These families included the teens and parents of 2 children (http://loveiskindcharity.com/case-1/), mom with 2 small kids & grandma with grandkids (http://loveiskindcharity.com/case-2/), as well as the family with 6 kids…4 of them adopted (http://www.facebook.com/l.php…).
Also , Love is Kind has made a donation of five hats from Mara Woman, filled with candy, to the mother with five children who recently fought against judicial injustice in the case of domestic violence (http://politik.md/…/video-o-orfana-cu-cinci…/35800/) …more pictures form this case coming soon! We have two hats and a pair of shoes that will be distributed to children in the oncology ward at the Mother and Child Center .
So, with your help we made so many children happy and for this we thank you!
Also, we would like to bring thousands of thanks to all of our volunteers who donated their time and finances to make all of this possible!
Here are some videos from the Nisporeni hospital. If the pictures shown until now haven’t convinced you yet – please see the video and see for yourself that these hospital conditions should be alarming to the whole country! Listen to these testimonies from moms who have been hospitalized there – no proper hygienic procedures followed, old beds and mattresses, lack of warm water, are these conditions appropriate for a hospital?
Thank you to the local tv station – Albasat TV which is informing the public about the state of this hospital.

We try to reach out to many people, organizations and public institutions asking to partner with us on our Sweet Medicine project. In the next few weeks we’ll give you more information about our partnership with the non-profit: “Caritas“, which has helped us with advice, as well as donations.
If you know of any organizations or people that could help us with our Renovation of the Kids’ department at the Nisporeni hospital, please let us know!

While attending the Moldovan-American Convention in NYC, I had the opportunity to meet some exceptional people – some Moldovans who have emigrated, and some who have returned back to Moldova. There was a clear message at the convention: more than ever, Moldova needs us (those that have left, and those still in MD) to combine efforts and try to change the country’s destiny for the better. Putting all our differences aside, each one of us is responsible to offer a better future to our kids!
La conventia Moldo-Americana din NY am avut ocazia sa intalnim persone cu adevarat exceptionale: atit moldoveni din Diaspora din SUA cat si cei reintorsi in tara. Mesajul primit de la conventie a fost unul foarte clar- Mai mult ca oricand, Moldova are nevoie de noi toti (cei de acasa si cei plecati) sa ne unim fortele si sa incercam impreuna sa schimbam destinul tarii in unul mai bun. Indiferent de aportul adus- fie unul politic, social sau economic- fiecare din noi e responsabil pentru a oferi un viitor mai bun copiilor nostri!
“Sweet Medicine” project should make everyone alarmed with the current non-sanitary conditions of the hospitals in Moldova. On this picture you see a mom and a baby of a few months who are hospitalized at the Nisporeni hospital. They’re missing basic necessities: a crib, a bed for mom, who had to bring her own bed sheets. You’ll notice there is water on the batter (by the window) being warmed up, as the hospital only has cold water.
We invite you to join our project, donate and get involved however you can. You can donate here: Generosity.
Tudor Vlas is a student, and passionate about Art and Guitar, he offered to paint the walls in the “happy corner” of the Nisporeni hospital. He will help us out with the murals, others will donate toys and books. It’s important to make a positive change for the hospitalized kids.
Important note: ANY help is appreciated, not just financial. Please contact us if you have any toys, or any of the items on the ‘needed’ list. We’re trying to make a difference for the kids who end up at the hospital.
If you’d like to donate financially, you can do so here: Sweet Medicine.
“Sweet Medicine” project has more volunteers from Nisporeni! Natalia, who is the coordinator is recruiting volunteers, and there are 3 big fundraising events coming up. There is a lot of work to do!
You can follow the progress here on the blog, and you can donate Donate to Sweet Medicine.
Thank you for all your support!
“Love is Kind” was recently featured on the Pretty in the Queen City blog…and we’re grateful that the author is educating the public about smaller countries such as Moldova, and is raising awareness about the importance of spreading Kindness.
