From time to time, as a local, I meet people who are traveling around Eastern Europe, some of them get excited discovering the Moldovan life and choose to stay longer in the country. A few times, I’ve met foreigners looking to spend a few months, or even longer in Moldova. When they asked for more local help I was always glad to help. Out of these meeting, I also developed great friendships. All these meetings didn’t stop me helping them settle, some people even wanted to be involved in helping some of the locals. This happened when two people from Holland decided to enjoy their long stay in Moldova, so they wanted to make new friends, learn the language, learn the culture, and become locals.
By then, I had told them about a young family with four children who needed temporary financial support to be able to move forward. After meeting with them, my friends from Holland decided to get involved. I offered advice on how to help this family. With now four children, they were in great need of a bathroom. After two months of hard work, the new bathroom came in as a great gift for this family.
