Moldova (Republic of)

Amidst the humanitarian crisis caused by the protracted war in neighbouring Ukraine, the displaced people fleeing to Moldova are in continuous need of assistance. In cooperation with the National Congress of Ukrainians in Moldova, the CareFor project supports the work of one of the Temporary Reception Centres in Chisinau.

The Temporary Reception Centre is a first-stop shelter that provides emergency accommodation targeting mainly Ukrainian women and children fleeing the war zone. It also offers food, medical care, psychological support, legal advice and other basic assistance. The Reception Centre has been established and is being run by a consortium of Ukrainian diaspora organizations including the National Congress of Ukrainians in Moldova, the Association of Ukrainian Youth in Moldova “Zlagoda”, and the Community of Ukrainian Women in Moldova.

In close consultation with the National Congress of Ukrainians in Moldova, the project “Capacity for a Rights-Based Reception System for Moldova” (CareFor) has identified, some of the needs at the Centre with the view to facilitate rendering assistance to its residents throughout the implementation timeframe. The expected result is to help alleviate the suffering of those in need that have been forcefully displaced by the war in Ukraine.

The CareFor project, funded by the Polish Ministry of the Interior and Administration, aims to contribute to a functioning and human-rights compliant migration management system in Moldova while addressing some of the more immediate needs caused by the unprecedented inflow of displaced people from Ukraine.
