Civil Society Coordination Meeting on September 22nd, 2022 – Meeting Minutes

 

Previous agenda:

  • Regarding the request brought up in a previous meeting by Adriana, IOM, consisting of an immediate need for cleaning products for Radauti Camp, Retno from UNHCR, together with Mihaela, from AMURTEL, held a discussion at the level of the refugee camp management from Rădăuți, regarding this situation. Therefore, cleaning and hygiene products are constantly needed, and because the influx of refugees can increase suddenly, these stocks must be procured in advance. Some of these products, which were constantly consumed, are laundry detergents, chlorine and disinfectants, head mop, buckets, bin bags, disposable gloves, personal hygiene products, coffee, sugar, disposable cups, etc.

Organizations that have the ability to provide support in this regard are invited to contact the management of the Rădăuți refugee camp.

 

  • Delia, Save the Children Organization, discussed with the representatives of Siret City Hall regarding the place back of ecological toilets. The response of the local administration is that the contract with the provider of this service has expired. The mayor’s office will analyze the situation and come back with an answer.

=> Delia will update us regarding this information at the next meeting.
