Title of the proposed initiative: “Help Ukrainian Refugees”
Location of the proposed project: Entry border points between Republic of Moldova and Ukraine
Key objective/outcomes of the proposed initiative: The initiative aims at immediate help to the Ukrainian refugees at the border entry points
It is important to act now when the help is needed the most. It is very impressive what Moldovan government is doing in this regard by building camps for temporary stops for refugees with hot tea and biscuits, diapers and first aid offered, along with hundreds and hundreds of Moldovans that open their
houses for free, their vehicles to take Ukrainians far from borders/ transport them into a safer place. But the demand is HUGE at the crossing boarder lines. It takes many hours for Ukrainians to overcome the dozens of km waiting lines prior to crossing the border. When stepping on Moldovan land people are exhausted, hungry, thirsty and cold.
Witnessing these all at Palanca, the conclusion was made, hot meals are crucial for cold hungry children, elderly and pregnant women. Refugees are asking for soups, water, female hygiene items, a warm tea. A number of churches, average Moldovans are there to help right at the border line but it’s by far not enough. Local public administration is opening public spaces for lodging, but these places are missing warm blankets and mattresses.
Cash Donations are required to purchase fuel for logistics between the borders and centres.
Also Due to being able to purchase all food goods locally we require cash donations
