Moldova: our support on the ground
Many Ukrainian refugees have fled to neighbouring Moldova, one of Europe’s poorest countries. We have already been running education projects here for 14 years, and after the war broke out, we acted quickly to support the refugees.
What we do
We make it possible for disadvantaged children to attend school regularly and promote tolerance and mutual understanding.
How you can help
Thanks to your support, we are able to commit ourselves to helping children in Switzerland and twelve countries around the world.
Painting rainbows againMore than four million Ukrainians have left their homeland since February. Many of them now find themselves in neighbouring Moldova, one of Europe’s poorest countries. The Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation has been running educational projects for disadvantaged children here for 14 years. After the war broke out, we acted quickly to support the refugees.
Shaping the future through educationChanging course and providing support. This was the motto agreed by the Management Board and Foundation Board of the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation (PCF) on 28 February 2022 during the Ukraine crisis. Since then, 150 people from Ukraine have arrived in the Village and have found a temporary home here. But where do we go from here? Let us look back so that we can then look forward.
We are supporting refugees in MoldovaThe current conflict poses a grave threat to the civilian population in Ukraine. 4 million people have fled their country in search of refuge. The Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation has been active in countries bordering Ukraine, especially in Moldova, since 2008. We have recently adapted and stepped up our activities on the ground.
Pestalozzi Children's Village prepares to welcome refugeesThe situation in Ukraine is getting worse day by day. The conflict poses a grave danger, especial-ly to the civilian population. The Pestalozzi Children's Foundation (PCF) is stepping up its sup-port on the ground and is preparing to take in refugees at the Children's Village.
