On 19th of July 2017, Mrs. Yolande Ditewig, representative of Regional Office of United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) from Budapest, visited the refugees’ families living in the social houses in Răzeni village in order to communicate with refugees living there and find out problems they face with. The visit aimed to understand living conditions of the refugee families and discuss challenges they deal with being part of the local community. Mrs. Yolande Ditewig wanted to hear directly from them the problems that they face in Moldova in order to develop new approaches of refugee integration into local communities. Mr. Djavid Paknehad, director of Charity Centre for Refugees (CCR) coordinated the meeting.
