Ukrainian Refugees in Moldova
The border area of Palanka in southern Moldova has become a crossing point for
thousands of Ukrainian refugees, their stories are of entire lives left behind and hopes for a future without war. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian refuges arrived at the border of Moldova seeking shelter.
Moldova is experiencing an unprecedented refugee crisis. There are well over 100,000 Ukrainian refugees currently in Moldova staying at government centers (~5,000) at makeshift centers registered with the government (~20,000) and in Moldovan’s homes (~75,000). The Moldovan government has heroically responded with its limited resources and without any past experience dealing with a humanitarian crisis of this size. The Moldovan people have opened their homes to host refugee families and people have donated food, clothing, blankets diapers, baby food and much more to help people who left their home on moment’s notice. Local NGOs have thrown all of their weight and staffing to understanding the needs of their communities and responding with support. Some church groups have organized refugee centers, funneled in donations and set up hot food kitchens at border crossings.
Moldova is expecting another large wave of refugees arriving that will be driven by the coming cold season. Scarce food and uncertainty about energy in Ukraine is driving vulnerable people west. Our organization is raising funds to distribute immediate humanitarian aid. We buy all supplies in Moldova to help to stimulate local economy.
All donations go toward the cause, and are tax deductible. Please contribute whatever amount you can. Kindly help us make a difference in the lives of those who are in this desperate situation.
