Oxfam International is an international confederation founded by 21 independent charities organizations that focus on alleviating global poverty.
As part of an ongoing project of Oxfam, CDA set up legal aid offices for Ukrainian refugees in ten locations in the country: Causeni, Stefan-Voda, Basarabeasca, Cahul, Ungheni, Balti, Soroca, Comrat, Orhei, Anenii Noi. In this way, Oxfam supports the extension of the CDA’s legal assistance activities to reach refugees in host communities outside Chisinau.
In addition to the individual legal advice and legal representation that refugees most frequently need, CDA representatives visit more vulnerable refugees and provide them with the support they need.
The project also involves capacity building activities of local authorities on refugee rights and obligations, national asylum procedures, and the integration of refugees into the host community. For this purpose, trainings, information activities for social workers, employees of local employment offices, mayors, teachers are organized.
