A growing number of refugees in the border areas between Moldova and Ukraine - mostly children and their mothers – suffer health related problems and are confronted with severe shortage of medicines. They experience constant psychological trauma as well as anxiety that is caused by war and by their refugee status. Moldova is the poorest of all countries that are currently accepting refugees from Ukraine and has the least potential to provide the necessary medicines and basic psychosocial protection for children and their mothers.
What we do
ITF, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia, is providing medical and psychosocial assistance to children refugees from Ukraine and their mothers by supplying necessary medicines and by organizing activities for children. These activities will alleviate the psychological consequences of armed conflict that children and their mothers endure. Assistance is aimed at treating children and parent trauma through psychosocial programs by alleviating their traumas and suffering.
