Humanitarian aid for 1500 displaced Ukrainians. Caritas Czech Republic has launched new project

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has already displaced more than 11 million people from their homes. Most of them left to the country's western regions, including Drohobych and its surroundings, which is hosting more than 40,000 displaced Ukrainians. The local Caritas branch provides them with assistance, but many people remain outside the official support. Caritas Czech Republic will improve the access to health care and provide immediate basic needs to 1500 displaced Ukrainians within the Drohobych region.

The impact of refugees on Moldova and the humanitarian aid provided by Caritas Czech Republic

Starting with February 24, 2022, Ukraine's civilian population has been forced to flee their country. Since then, millions of people have been displaced within Ukraine or in neighbouring countries. Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary and the Republic of Moldova have become the main host countries for the Ukrainian people. Although Moldova is Ukraine's smallest neighbour and has the fewest economic resources, it has received the most refugees per capita so far. How is the country coping with the current situation and how is Caritas Czech Republic helping refugees in Moldova?
