Easter in Gagauzia, the traditional Orthodox celebration.

Easter time is like every year a time of commemoration deeply rooted in the Gagauz religious traditions. After forty days of lent through which the strong devoted ones did not eat meat, milk or eggs, the time for celebrations arrived. Between the first Mass to the second one in the cemetery to commemorate the dead loved and close ones, the Gagauz people show their fervent commitment to the Orthodox Church and its customs.


Miras-Moldova works to raise awareness of the Gagauzian culture, encourage social integration of ethnic minorities into Moldovan society and to save the cultural heritage of the Moldovan population.


Miras-Moldova also supports families of disabled youth from surrounding communities. Volunteers from the public administration work with individuals with a range of disabilities including physical, sensory, mental and learning disabilities.
