The Vlas family consists of seven members – two parents and five children: Victor - 11 years old; Adrian - 10 years old; Mihai - almost 7 years old; Petrica - almost 4 years old; Maxim - 1 year old.
Earlier, the Vlas family lived in a rural area, but due to the impossibility to find a job there, they was forced to move to the city of Ialoveni. In Ialoveni, the father of Vlas family got a job in a workshop for the production of tiles. Currently, he is the only member of the family that has a job, while the mother - Lucica Vlas is a housewife that educates her five children. The head of the family spends most of his time at work in order to feed this large family.
The village house where the family lived before is impossible to sell due to a number of reasons (only a part of the house is in the property of Vlas family, the house itself is in deplorable condition and is located in a remote rural area).
At the moment, the family lives in a rented old house, or to be more precise in a single room with an area of 28 square meters due to economic reasons: since there is no gas system in the house, they use firewood for heating.
The house is very old and therefore has many disadvantages - the lack of proper repairs, absence of kitchen and bathroom, decrepit walls and roof, cracks, mold, old wiring, lack of decent yard for children. Also, the house has no running water and sewerage.
The conditions in which the family lives are not suitable at all, since there is no enough space for a normal development of each child. School-age children have to take turns to do their homework on the dinner table. Younger children cannot fully move and play because of narrowness of space.
The Vlas family receives a family allowance, but it is not enough to buy their own, even the most modest house.
This tiny room is certainly not suitable for such a large family, taking into account that the children are growing up. Now, the Vlas family requires a crucial improving of their housing situation, first of all for children that need decent development conditions. (The social norm of living space for a normal development of a child is at least 12 square meters for each individual, and not less than 18 square meters of area per family member).
Based on this deplorable housing situation Vlas family, Caritate.md begins to collect donations for the purchase of a new house for this family. The amount required for the purchase of a new property is 16,000 euros. This is the minimal amount that allows acquiring a suitable accommodation in Ialoveni district. Anyone, who cares and wants to help the Vlas family, can assist them by making donations in any convenient form.
