STORYLINE:

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) said the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is tearing families apart. Over 2.1 million Ukrainians have now fled to neighbouring countries as the war enters its third week.

More than 278,000 Ukrainian citizens have crossed the border into the Republic of Moldova and almost 100,000 remain in the country, which has its own socioeconomic challenges, and now hosts the largest number of Ukrainian refugees per capita.

On Thursday (10 Mar), UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem met with Ukrainian women and girls at the Manej Stadium and the Moldexpo Centre in Chișinău, the capital of Moldova. Both locations were transformed overnight into temporary shelters for Ukrainian refugees.

Dr. Kanem met a seven-month pregnant woman, Nadia Lihovidova, with her two children, six-year-old Michael and one-year-old Karina, who came from Odessa, accompanied by Polina, Nadia’s mother. The family has been staying at Moldexpo centre temporarily and hope to find a permanent place to live.

Some 4,300 Ukrainian babies have been born since the start of the war – both inside Ukraine and in neighbouring countries. An estimated 80,000 pregnant women in and outside of Ukraine will give birth in the next three months. For them, sexual and reproductive health services are as vital as food, water and shelter.

UNFPA said it is committed to scaling up delivery of life-saving services for women and girls. Kits, containing soap, period products and underwear, are being distributed on the border and at displacement centres. Information on protection services and support is also being provided to women and girls, including details of the national toll-free hotline.

UNFPA stressed that this war must stop, and humanitarian corridors must be open.
