Inside Look at a UNICEF Blue Dot Center Supporting Refugees from Ukraine
March 31, 2022
Sustainable Development Goals: 16
- SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Sorin Stefanescu, Fundraising Campaign Coordinator for UNICEF Romania, walks through UNICEF's Blue Dot center in Serit, Romania, the first of 26 Blue Dots to open to support refugee children and mothers fleeing the war in Ukraine. The facility is designed to be a one-stop-shop for a range of services for those in need, including counseling and health screenings; children traveling unaccompanied are identified, registered and supported. UNICEF is training local authorities to eventually take over these centers, while building a network that will allow Blue Dots to share information and provide continuity of services for vulnerable families on the move.
