9.SOUNDBITE (English) Nigina Abaszadeh, UNFPA Representative in Moldova: “UNFPA is on the ground, at the borders, and in the refugee placement camps, like this one that we are here today, to ensure that health, rights, and dignity of all women and girls are safeguarded. This includes the right to give birth safely. This includes the right to live free from violence. The reproductive health needs of women and girls are often overlooked in the situation of emergency. And today we deliver more than 1,000 Dignity kits with essential menstrual hygiene and sanitary items.”

13.SOUNDBITE (English) Nigina Abaszadeh, UNFPA Representative in Moldova: “One of the women whom I met today in this placement center told me, “ there is no dignity in having your period when you are a refugee.” Maintaining dignity and confidence helps women and girls to overcome the hardship that they are facing now. As for reproductive health needs: pregnant women, postpartum women, women who are getting treated for reproductive diseases, or women who survive sexual violence, or adolescent girls…. all these needs have to be addressed in the case of emergency and displacement.”

STORYLINE
Nearly 100,000 Ukrainian refugees have crossed the border into Moldova since the beginning of the conflict.

About half of them are currently remaining in Moldova. Most of the refugees are women with children, and older persons.

UNFPA donated dignity kits to support women with their basic hygiene and sanitary needs. UNFPA also provided information on reproductive health services and referred pregnant women to medical care units.

The refugees are placed all over the country in placement centers. The Center for refugees at the Football Club “Zimbru” in Chisinau is one of such centers, offering sanitary facilities and meals. At the time UNFPA visited the center, there were two pregnant women among the refugees.

An estimated 80,000 Ukrainian women will give birth in the next three months – many of them without access to critical maternal health care. For some, childbirth will be a life-threatening rather than a life-changing experience.

The impacts of the hostilities are being felt across the region. More than 1 million people have fled, seeking refuge in neighbouring countries including Poland, the Republic of Moldova, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania in addition to other European countries.
