On 13th of December, the Charity Centre for Refugees (CCR), partner of UNHCR Moldova and Bureau of Migration and Asylum had a meeting with representatives of the Football Federation of Moldova to discuss future partnership.

The meeting aimed at drafting the directions of collaboration intended to be established for the benefit of refugees living in the Republic of Moldova within various projects financed by the UEFA and FIFA. The idea to create a partnership between the organisations came up to the Football Federation of Moldova after CCR asked for their support several years within Football against racism in Europe project financed by the FARE Network.

CCR’s director, Mr. Djavid Paknehad expresses his gratitude to the President of the FMF, Mr. Pavel Ciobanu and his colleagues, Mr. Leonid Oleinicenco and Ms. Ludmila Tabacaru for the visit at our centre. CCR highly appreciates the efforts of Football Federation of Moldova to support refugee community to integrate into the society.
