STORYLINE
On the second day (10 May) of Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ visit to Moldova, he commended the Moldovan people for their generosity and solidarity towards those fleeing the war in Ukraine as he met with the country’s president, Maia Sandu, pledging to scale up the United Nations response to the humanitarian crisis.

The UN Chief visited the MoldExpo refugee centre, where he met with several Ukrainian refugees to listen to their stories. At MoldExpo, refugees can access services such as medical support, cash assistance, and legal aid. He also spoke with UN Agency representatives about their work in support of refugees and the Moldovan UN Youth Advisory Panel.

At a press conference held at MoldExpo, Guterres emphasized the urgent need of financial support for Moldova.

He said, “my appeal is, please, all those that have the power of decision in international institutions or in countries that have economic capacity, please make the support to Moldova an important priority in your response to this dramatic crisis created by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

Following his visit, Guterres then met with Vasilie and Claudia Turcanu, a retired married couple who are hosting three generations of Ukrainian refugees in their home. 95 percent of refugees stay in the homes of host families like the Turcanu’s, with just 5 percent living in refugee centres.
