In the period 01.01. 2023 – 31.08.2023, CDA implemented the Project “Promoting adequate, dignified and safe living conditions in Ukraine and Moldova for victims of the armed conflict in Ukraine”, implemented by HEKS Moldova, with the financial support of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), NACHBAR IN NOT (NiN) Foundation and Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe.
The project, carried out by several Moldovan NGOs, aimed to create better living conditions, ensure access to services and assistance for people affected by the war in Ukraine and settled in the Republic of Moldova.
CDA was involved in the implementation of the legal assistance and human rights education component – “Refugees in Moldova are aware of their rights and local authorities have a better understanding of refugee rights”.
To this end, CDA developed 12 video materials for refugees, migrants and asylum seekers around the world to help them with information on the legal assistance offered by the CDA on refugee status, the procedure to be followed and support institutions.
To increase access to assistance and integration opportunities for refugees from Ukraine, CDA has also developed information materials on temporary protection.
Also, within the framework of this project, CDA developed three training courses and organized ten training sessions with the participation of 212 social workers, representatives of guardianship authorities and GIM staff.
For social workers and representatives of guardianship authorities the course “Ensuring the rights of children (foreign citizens) unaccompanied or accompanied by unauthorized persons” was developed.
The training course “Examination of the asylum application” was addressed to eligibility counsellors of the General Inspectorate for Migration and “Respect for human rights at the state border” – to border guards.
The course materials developed will be placed on a dedicated page on CDA website, accessible free of charge, which will form the basis of a Training Platform (hub) promoting international standards in the field of human rights and refugee rights.
Last but not least, a new version of CDA website has been developed as part of the project. The website has been optimized in terms of structure, completed with useful information for the organization’s beneficiaries and national and international partners.
The new website includes a separate Training Hub section, which will insert information about the training/information activities carried out, CDA training offers.
New CDA website is more accessible for people with visual impairment and is adapted to their needs.
The new version of CDA website contains more details about the work of the organization and its team, about the association’s partners and collaboration with them, ongoing and completed projects.
