Caring for the Poor & the Vulnerable

As the war in Ukraine continues, the reality that many Ukrainians in Moldova are facing is long term refugee status. Our Crisis Response Director, Cezara Moscalciuc, was able to meet and talk with families about what long term care looks like after vital needs are taken care of. We are beginning to prepare to meet this second “wave” of needs and are trying to determine how many families under our care plan to stay in Moldova long term.

We also continue to work and partner with different churches and refugee camps. Our main focus as we work with families is to determine what the needs are and address them all to the extent we are able. Most of the families with small children and the elderly are asking for food and other basic items, as they cannot find jobs here in Moldova or are unable to work the jobs that are available.

Our team in Moldova is able to step in and reach needs more fully than other government organizations are able to. Due to the number of refugees coming into Moldova, many organizations struggle to meet the needs of the individual as they try to reach the needs of the masses. JMI is able to see each individual family and provide them with a great quality and quantity of care that they wouldn’t be able to find elsewhere.

Summer is approaching and many refugees only brought winter clothes with them when they fled their homes. Long term support is a reality as the war continues and families have to stay longer in Moldova. As inflation continues to rise, the cost of care increases. We are incredibly thankful for our supporters who make it possible for us to provide a high level of care and aid to the people of Moldova.

As long as there are refugees in Moldova, we will continue to serve them. It is a privilege to do the Lord’s work alongside you. Together we are making a difference.
