About

From the onset of the Ukrainian refugee crisis, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Moldova established itself as a trusted partner to deliver critical humanitarian support for children, including child protection; education; health and nutrition; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and social protection. This includes scaling up the UNICEF and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)-supported network of Blue Dots1 in strategic locations to provide a multisectoral humanitarian response.

Since the start of war in Ukraine, nearly 750,000 individuals have fled to the Republic of Moldova from Ukraine. At present, 108,000 refugees remain in the country, nearly half of them children. Most of the refugees from Ukraine are residing in private accommodation within host communities, including 41 per cent in the country’s capital, Chisinau.
