“Keep up with the times, develop and never rest on our laurels” – these are the thoughts with which we approach the organisation of work within the RVC.

The severe consequences of hostilities in Ukraine have also affected our country.

We all rallied to provide support to people who are in trouble and came to Moldova, hoping to find temporary shelter here.
