“Clothes Bank” – Petrom Moldova
Due to a corporate social responsibility partnership between Petrom Moldova and the Social Mission “Diaconia”, thousands of needy people are clothed through local resources.
For more than seven years, through the project “𝐁𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐚 𝐝𝐞 𝐇𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐞” (Clothes bank), Diaconia has succeeded in developing a local mechanism of social solidarity by collecting and redistributing material goods to people in need.
Compared to 2022, when 60 tons of goods were collected, this year, in the first half only, over 42 tons of clothing, shoes, toys and bedding were collected.
All these goods end up in the network of social wardrobes in dozens of localities all over the country (parishes), but also through partner organisations. The beneficiaries of the donations are people in need: socially vulnerable families, the elderly, the homeless, etc.
