475 300 lei were raised at the 5th edition of the Gala of Generosity, this year. The most beautiful concert of the autumn brings us together around the famous voice – Valentina Nafornița, which helps us to make our mission to be heard ’’Families. Not orphanages’’.
Chișinău, 4th of December 2018 – Wherever she goes, Valentina Nafornița, the patron of CCF/HHC Moldova since 2012, makes time for the only charitable concert which she organizes and performs in Chișinău for the most vulnerable children from our programs.
The money collected on 30st of November from generous donations of the spectators and supporters will continue to help more children in 2019 to be raised in a family environment, either to return to their families from institutions, or to be prevented from separation from the loved ones.
This year, the Gala of Generosity was held at the Organ Hall from Chișinău. The exceptional performance of the artists, the soprano Valentina Nafornita, the violonist Rusanda Panfili and the baritone Mihail Dogotari, made the public to feel strong emotions which was rewarded with long applause. On the stage, the artists were accompanied by 40 young men and women from the Moldovan National Youth Orchestra and by the children choir ’’Lia Ciocârlia’’ under the maestro Andrey Yurkevych’s baton. .
The novelty of the concert was the duet between Valentina Nafornița and her guest Rusanda Panfili, an absolute premiere for the local audience. The protagonists have spoiled the spectators with many surprises, but the song “Besame mucho” was a surprise even for the organisers of the event.
The evening continued with a select dinner offered by the CCF/HHC Moldova Ambassadors of Philanthropy, Berdos family. The warm and friendly ambience contributed to the success of the auction. The most generous had the chance to bid for a unique and unforgettable object or experience.
The sum will go entirely towards family support programmes developed by CCF/HHC Moldova which aims to assist and offer chances to every child to a safe family environment.
Annually, CCF/HHC Moldova is working with 400 children, new cases, but are monitoring nearly 1000 children, their situation is quite complex and needs more support.
“At the first event in 2014 we had about 100 persons, last year we reached a record number – 660, because the hall was bigger. At the moment, we have sold out 500 tickets. On behalf of CCF/HHC Moldova partners, organisers, artists, families and children, we would like to thank everyone who support our work!”, Liliana Rotaru, CCF Moldova director mentioned at the end of the concert.
“The Gala of Generosity is an annual concert which I cannot miss, no matter what my program is. We are bringing hope and dreams to children who were deprived to have them. I saw little miracles happening in time. I met children and families whose destinies we have changed, together. This why I want to say a big thanks to you”, CCF/HHC Moldova patron, Valentina Nafornița, said in an interview.
At the previous edition of the Gala of Generosity, we raised more than 600 000 lei. The amount helped us to prevent 130 children to be separated from their families.
