Women are known to be the most vulnerable and unprotected members of Moldovan society. They experience various forms of oppression and stigmatization.
70% of women in Moldova have experienced violence at least once in their lives. Over 30% of women are regularly subjected to emotional, economic, sexual and physical abuse. 60% of Moldovan women have had two or more abortions in their lives, the majority for economic reasons. Going even deeper, we learned that 1/3 of Moldova's population lives in poverty, and these people are at constant risk of experiencing various forms of oppression and marginalization. In response to the desperate situations of such women, children, adults and old people BOL established the Humanitarian Aid Center with the aim of providing assistance to the most vulnerable and needy. The center distributes food, clothing and hygiene items.
