Association for Education Neoumanist

Mission of the organization

Improving the quality of life of the most vulnerable groups of society (elderly, people with disabilities, women) through providing basic necessities and medical, social and spiritual assistance. Neoumanist Association provides residential care, home visits and day treatment to over one hundred elderly in the district of Straseni in the Republic of Moldova. Our beneficiaries are typically impoverished, vulnerable, and without family support and many of them are chronically ill and homebound. The Neoumanist Association serves the most vulnerable groups in the community (especialy the elderly and disabled) with the following goals: to improve the quality of life of the most vulnerable groups in Moldova, to help the community respect and value humanity, to help people attain harmony and a decent standard of living. The "Neoumanist" Association for Education is a NGO (non-governmental organization) that was registered in the Republic of Moldova in November 2000 by the Ministry of Justice. Since 2003 AE Neoumanist has established four major projects: 1. Rasarit Day Care Centre in the rural town of Straseni, in 2003 2. Spectru Home for senior citizens in the rural town of Straseni, in 2005 3. Home Care serving the outlying villages of Straseni district, in 2007 4. Mobile Meals for the neediest elderly, in 2012. Each of these projects provides high quality services and assistance to socially vulnerable elderly people in Straseni and Straseni district. The basic features characterizing the target group are: 1. Compromised psychological health as a result of untreated depression, feelings of despair and hopelessness, and lack of social interaction and loneliness; gender and ethnic discrimination. 2. Malnutrition caused by insufficient income with the attendant inability to purchase nutritious, high-caloric foods, as well as the great difficulty of obtaining and preparing food because of physical disability or other deficiencies; 3. Unsanitary living conditions resulting, again, from insufficient income to purchase cleaning and hygiene supplies and the difficulty of obtaining and utilizing these supplies because of physical disability or other deficiencies. Neoumanist Association understands that, in order to truly help seniors live rich and full lives, we must assist them in satisfying their basic needs before they can attend to issues of justice, equality, and fairness. Through the provision of socio -medical services and supplementary social activities to disadvantaged seniors, Neoumanist strives to promote social and gender equity in Moldova. A person living in extreme poverty, without adequate food or shelter, cannot effectively participate in civil society. Through meeting those basic needs, we enable them to become, in time, more engaged and vocal participants within their communities.
