Belarussian Community in Moldova

An exhibition dedicated to the 10th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Moldova and Belarus recently opened in the National History Museum. A lot was said there about the contribution of the people from Belarus to the cultural development of Moldova.

Volunteer – 2002

After the break-up of the Soviet Union the notion of community service, which emphasized the importance of public welfare and individual contribution to the amelioration of our environment as well as the implementation of high morals, became obsolete in the Republic of Moldova. What once became history is returning to the republic in the different form of Western volunteer work.
