Plan International Moldova

Liliana and Diana, 3, at a refugee centre in Moldova

Plan International started operating in the Republic of Moldova in March 2022 to support the Government, the UN and humanitarian partners in responding to the arrival of refugees from Ukraine.  

Over 800,000 refugees have crossed into Moldova from Ukraine since the start of the conflict and around 100,000 have remained in the territory of the country.

We’ve partnered with 10 local non-governmental organisations to boost their capacity to keep children safe and provide them with a quality education. Through our partners, we are implementing programmes across Moldova, with a focus on the Northern and Southern regions and the municipality of Chisinau.  

We support the most vulnerable refugee children with food and hygiene products to address their basic needs, and help them prepare for winter. We also support them to access play, education, mental health support, legal services, and other social and emotional support services. All our work promotes children’s rights, mental health and gender equality.

Our current priorities include:

  • Keeping refugee children safe 
  • Supporting children to continue their education 
  • Safeguarding children, including the prevention of trafficking in refugee accommodation centres 
  • Supporting the specific protection needs of minority groups, including those from LGBTIQ+ and Roma communities. 

Our work in Moldova is part of a regional response to the Ukraine crisis which also includes programmes in PolandUkraine and Romania.
