Our work in Moldova

The ICRC has been active in the Republic of Moldova for almost three decades. However, we established a permanent presence there by setting up a delegation in March 2022 to respond to the humanitarian needs arising from the international armed conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Our delegation focuses on promoting respect for international humanitarian law, reducing protection-related risks resulting from the conflict, in part through psychosocial assistance and training, and providing our restoring family links service. In addition to strengthening our dialogue with the national authorities, we work in cooperation with the Moldova Red Cross Society and other partners in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. Our programmes and activities are focused on preparedness and capacity-building for a range of stakeholders, which include government officials, armed and security forces, academia, the media and civil society groups.
