On Saturday 20 February 2016, at Shopping MallDova, the Charity Centre for Refugees participated in “Global Village“- an AIESEC event organized annually in more than 126 countries of the world with the aim of promoting tolerance, free thinking and intercultural communication.

Many young internationals coming from countries such as Mexic, Algeria, Tanzania, Nigeria, Poland etc. presented their countries through traditional songs and dances, food, clothing, and music. In this framework, UNHCR persons of concern from Iraq, Syria, India alongside CCR presented their culture and traditions through dance, food, interviews.

The initiative gave an opportunity to raise awareness and build tolerance towards refugees and asylum seekers living in the Republic of Moldova.
