Update - this article has been superseded by a new version. This is an article dedicated to how you can support Ukrainian refugees in Moldova. We will be back later today with another update on the war and news from Moldova. ***Update - we are adding some organizations as we collaborate with them on the ground and there are many more in the comments. Please read through to see the many many organization that are under resourced but trying their best in these hard times. We will work to create a more comprehensive list of organizations soon.
Hi, I'm a middle school teacher in suburban Chicago. One of my students wants to make cards and notes of support for Ukrainian refugees. Could we send a package of letters that you could distribute along with supplies? Please let me know. LBrown@op97.org
Hi David we are sending you love from Makely Dr and will be sending what we can to help in your efforts. Peace.
Thanks for the updates. They are quickly becoming the first thing I scan for in my inbox. Va multumesc pentru serviciul tau. Sper ca Moldova va stai in siguranta.

David - I live in Minneapolis but would like to come to Moldova and personally volunteer to do whatever is needed. Where can I find contacts that can steer me in the proper direction?? Jrice4@comcast.net
Thank you, David. Was wondering how to support Moldova's efforts in helping Ukraine.
Thank you for the update! Justice and Mercy International helps vulnerable children in Moldova and our 40+ staff on the ground have been working tirelessly to help Ukrainian refugees in this crisis. We are partnering with churches and other organizations, including Samaritan's Purse to help as much as possible. Here is the link for updates to give towards our efforts.
Thanks for the updates! I was waiting for the links you sent to donate. Is there need for volunteers in Chisinau or elsewhere? Didn't see any mention of it on the Facebook page. I live in Ungheni, and speak pretty much no Russian but can get by with my Romanian. I can assist pretty much any time or day.
Cru, short for Campus Crusade, is a ministry operating in Moldova. They are running vans to the border and transporting folks back to their office for short term lodging and food.
Here is a link you can donate at specifically to help with those expenses:
Thanks for your updates! I just donated via Friends of Moldova. Really appreciate hearing what’s happening.
