Chisinau, 13 September /MOLDPRES/ - The Interior Ministry’s (MAI) General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU) today received a new consignment of humanitarian assistance on behalf of the United States for Moldova, in order to back the refugees from Ukraine.

„We are grateful to the Embassy for having made its utmost for this assistance to reach the General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations.

The U.S. ambassador in Chisinau said that Moldova ‘’achieved an extraordinary thing for the refugees from Ukraine – it provided safety, consolidation and hospitability to the people in need.’’
“We hope that our help will contribute to better and more comfortable living conditions to the people who had to leave their living places. I want to thank you for what you do for the good of your country and community,’’ Kent D. Logsdon said.
The batch of humanitarian assistance, estimated at 1,628,489 dollars, is made up of 9 containers with more than 7,000 assets (tents, folding beds, pillows, sheets, beds, etc.) and will be distributed by IGSU according to their purpose. These represent just a part of the humanitarian assistance provided by the USA; the first one was donated to IGSU on 13 April 2022.
