The Charity Centre for Refugees organized on 27 February 2016 a workshop for the beneficiaries to create Martisor. First of all, a presentation was shown to the public, where they found out about the meaning, the origins and tradition in Moldova of the Mărţişor.
We encouraged them to wear it on the 1st of March, as a traditional symbol of Spring´s arrival and wishes of good luck for the coming year, which gave them additional opportunity to get more familiar to the local habits and values, by practicing by themselves this tradition which will bring them closer to the local people.
