Chisinau, August 18 /MOLDPRES/- About 350 refugee families from Ukraine will benefit during three consecutive months from cards worth 1,500 lei (about 75 euros), which will temporarily ensure food and hygiene security, the Caritas Czech organisation announced today.
The organisation has started the distribution of cards for refugees sheltered in the regions of Comrat, Ceadâr-Lunga, Vulcăneşti, Criuleni and Călărași. They will be granted to the most vulnerable families of Ukrainian refugees such as pregnant and single women, families with two or more children, people with disabilities or chronic conditions and the elderly.
"We will distribute the cards to about 350 refugee families. They will allow Ukrainians in refuge to purchase a wide range of hygiene and basic food products, except for alcohol and tobacco products. The cards will allow refugees to make personal decisions about the hygiene products and food they need," said Anastasia Vasiliev, project coordinator.
The activity is part of the project Ensuring food and hygiene security for vulnerable refugees from Ukraine, implemented by Caritas Czech organisation with the support of Caritas Luxembourg.
