Ukraine: EU humanitarian operation in Moldova enhances assistance for refugees

April 13, 2022

This week, the European Commission is conducting a humanitarian operation in Moldova through the European Humanitarian Response Capacity (EHRC) to enhance the EU emergency response and support humanitarian partners already active in the field.

The operation consists of setting up a warehouse in Chisinau for humanitarian partners and the delivery of over 1,200 tents and 4,000 blankets for people displaced by the Russian aggression against Ukraine.

The warehouse and deployment of humanitarian supplies are fully funded by the EU.

With Russian military aggression on Ukraine unfolding in a devastatingly brutal way, the humanitarian needs of the civilians affected are growing exponentially. In order to be able to provide a lifeline to everyone in need, all the capacities available must be mobilised,” said European Commissioner for Crisis Management Janez Lenarčič.
