Responding with care: Beauty services coupled with counselling for Ukrainian refugees in Moldova

Since the first day of the war in Ukraine, Anastasia Bacico has been actively involved in the refugee response in Hîrbovăț, Anenii Noi, a village in central Moldova. A 28-year-old from the local community, Anastasia studied as a foreign language interpreter, but her interest in civic engagement and community aid led her to begin a salon that offers free beauty services and psychological support for refugees and local women. The salon is run through the project “Feminist and localized humanitarian action”, supported by Gender Centru—a partner organization of UN Women that receives funding from the Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF).
