As hundreds of thousands flee Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, another ex-Soviet state offers them health care, schooling and other incentives to stay and boost their labour pool.

Ukrainian refugee children get something to eat in Palanca, Moldova, on Feb. 28. Moldova and other neighbours of Ukraine have accepted thousands of refugees since the Russian invasion began.

Ukrainian refugees are pouring into Moldova – more than 88,000 so far – and its government and companies are scrambling to give them chances to work through acts of charity that coincide with a national need for labour.

The government is sweeping away legal barriers to their employment and opening its classrooms to Ukrainian teachers. Meanwhile, companies are offering jobs as graphic designers, office managers, construction workers, restaurant staff and IT workers.
