Chisinau, 1 November /MOLDPRES/ - The parliament hosts a charity exhibition of paintings, made by children of Moldova and refugees from Ukraine. The paintings are put to auction starting from today and the money raised will be used for managing the needs of the refugees who are in Moldova.
According to the parliament’s communication and public relations department, the works were made at a painting workshop, in which 26 children participated, guided by fine artists Elvira Cemortan-Voloșin, Aliona Lavrinenco and Viorica Gribincea. Painted in the colours of peace, optimism and hope for the better, the original works by children attracted the attention of lawmakers and will colour the atmosphere in their offices.
