Daria Smirnova, 33, left Odessa, Ukraine with her mother and son and arrived in Chișinău, the capital of the Republic of Moldova, approximately 180 kilometres away. Nine months pregnant with another boy, she is due to give birth in a matter of weeks.

“Above my house, I saw a burning missile, which was terrifying. We started packing, moved to the basement and stayed there that night,” she says.

UNFPA is on the ground providing information on reproductive health services and referring pregnant women like Ms. Smirnova to medical care units.
