This week, 8 members of the European Parliament came on a working visit to the Republic of Moldova. On this occasion, the President of CCF Moldova, Ms. Liliana Rotaru met with the delegation of European officials.
The topics of discussion were how the war in Ukraine affected the situation in Moldova, how civil society handles it and how the partnership with the authorities works, but also what was the response of CCF Moldova in the context of the refugee crisis and – most important – what are the messages for the European Parliament and the European Commission on immediate and long-term needs.
CCF Moldova reiterated its position – that more investment is needed to strengthen the social protection system, to give priority to vulnerable groups in Moldova, which in recent months have been less in the spotlight of both the authorities and of civil society, because both were in a process of adapting to the needs of refugees, in a spirit of solidarity and humanity.
The head of the delegation concluded that more capacity and additional financial resources are needed.
CCF Moldova hopes that its messages will be heard and that there will be a response in line with its expectations.
