Since the early days of the emergency situation in Ukraine, IOM Moldova has been on the front line to deliver prevention messages on the risks of trafficking for refugees and third country nationals crossing the Ukrainian-Moldovan border. Trafficking in persons has been identified as a serious protection risk in the current context.
IOM, together with La Strada, UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency and Moldova for Peace, decided to join forces in the development of messages for communities. Leaflets highlighting the risks were distributed with prepared packages for Ukrainian refugees in need of food and hygiene products.
IOM Moldova, together with all UN Moldova entities, will continue to provide help and support to refugees and local authorities.
