The Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova (JCRM) has organized 11 temporary accommodation centers for Ukrainian Jewish refugees all over the country. There they can receive necessary information, place to sleep and other conditions for their stay – as well as transport, food and personal hygiene products. According to chairman of the Jewish community of the Republic of Moldova and Euro-Asian Jewish Congress Vice President Alexandr Bilinkis, the Jewish community of Moldova acts in coordination with the government of Israel, Israel Embassy, The Jewish Agency and various religious organizations in Ukraine. The main goal of these actions is help to refugees with any possible assistance.
The Euro-Asian Jewish Congress has urgently provided significant financial assistance to the JCRM and helped to evacuate people from the war zone. Moldovan Jewish Community representatives expressed their gratitude to the EAJC leadership for the assistance.
We remind you that on the basis of the EAJC was opened a special fund for humanitarian aid to the Jews of Ukraine. Anyone can donate via bank transfer or on our website.
According to the UN, since the outbreak of the conflict, more than 3.3 million Ukrainians have leaved the country. Over the 360 thousand people fled to Moldova. Among them are thousands of Jews.
“This is a real humanitarian crisis. Thousands and thousands of people are leaving from explosions, from the war. At this difficult moment, the Jewish Community of the Republic of Moldova is accepting a huge number of refugees. Today we have thousands of refugees who come every day. Unfortunately, everything that happens today can’t be characterised only by one word. This is chaos and horror and human grief” – said chairman of the JCRM and EAJC Vice President Alexandr Bilinkis.
