On April 06, 2023, CDA, the Raion Public Library “Ion Ungureanu” Causeni and the City Public Library Ștefan Vodă organized the events “Together for society without barriers”.
The main purpose of these events was to raise awareness about the problems faced by in society displaced people from Ukraine and people with disabilities and to promote a culture of inclusion and accessibility.
The libraries in Causeni and Stefan Voda were among the first institutions in these districts to offer space for activities for displaced persons from Ukraine.
The events reviewed the actions carried out in Causeni and Stefan Voda in the period 2022-2023 within the project “Decentralized support for Ukrainian refugees”, implemented by CDA and funded by the international humanitarian organization Oxfam.
During this period, in Stefan Voda and Causeni, 22 social cohesion events, 16 information sessions, 97 confidential counselling sessions were organized for about 200 beneficiaries – refugees and displaced people from Ukraine.
The results of the partnership established between the CDA and the Raion Public Library ,,Ion Ungureanu” Causeni and the City Public Library of Stefan Voda were also presented. Within the framework of these partnerships, several events were organized with the participation of displaced persons from Ukraine and the inhabitants of the districts of Causeni and Stefan Voda.
The agenda of the events included also the presentation of real stories of people with disabilities from the local community.
The events culminated with the donation by the CDA to the two libraries of a set of lifts for people with disabilities, which were tested on the spot by the beneficiaries.
