ACTED Moldova

As of February 24th 2022, ACTED deployed an emergency team in Moldova to support people who were affected by the conflict in Ukraine and had to cross the border.

Our teams mobilized quickly to carry out needs assessments along the border and in reception centers, in close coordination with the Moldovan authorities.

ACTED’s first actions concerned the deployment of buses in Palanca and Tudora, in addition to buses provided by the Moldovan and Romanian authorities, in order to transport refugees from crossing points to reception centers or to Romania, in agreement with the authorities of both countries.

Today, ACTED has diversified its fields of action in the country and implements or participates, with its partners, in the following operations:

  • Support to the government for the site management of over 100 refugee accommodation and reception centers
  • Reception and distribution of donations of basic necessities to refugees for NFIs and hot meals (around 20,000 hot meals were distributed from February to April) and multi purpose cash assistance for refugees and Moldovan families hosting refugees
  • Installation of sanitation facilities at border points and provision of free transportation services to Romania and within Moldova for newly arrived refugees
