The European Commission is a very unique European Union (EU) institution. Its main function is European integration but it also monitors breaches of agreements, handles external relations, counsels EU member states on paths of development, and traditionally protects the interests of small member states.
Women make up about half of all migrants in the world and this figure grows annually. In Ukraine labour migration very often involves women. Female migrants encounter unique problems and hazards in their native and host countries. They often become victims of abuse (psychological, physical, or sexual).
Because of this situation, Caritas focuses on helping to reintegrate Ukrainian migrants who wish to come back to Ukraine.
During the meeting between Caritas Ukraine and Caritas Germany the activities of both organizations was presented, and their goals and the possibility of cooperation were discussed.
