In order to draw attention to the refugee crisis in Moldova as a result of over 90,000 Ukrainians now residing in this, Europe's poorest nation: A number is equal to nearly 3% of the population!

Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the funds we raise for the relief effort go directly to that effort, and nowhere else.

The video below is very graphic. Both the language of the combatants and the visual images are raw and unexpurgated. We certainly understand anyone's hesitance to view it and welcome you to skip ahead. In any event, we strongly recommend that no one under sixteen, or those with special sensitivity, watch it. However, we feel it necessary to post it as it is a visceral response to the question, "Why is Minjin in Ukraine?" This is the horror of Russia's invasion. Whatever your thoughts on politics, politicians, and political motivations, this is reality for the innocent people of Bakhmut and other Ukrainian towns, cities, and villages live with every day.

This video report from the BBC provides an overview of life in the Moldovan capitol in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Thanks to our donors, Minjin was able to team with the Nadiya Project to turn and abandoned, Soviet-era elementary school in western Ukraine into home - not just human storage - for 100 refugee women and children. This is the prototype, many more such homes are needed. To contribute, go to our Donate page, enter Refugee Homes in your donation note. Thank you!
