Moldovan paralegals in rural communities

„If it hadn’t been for the paralegal, I don’t know what would have happened to me. It was impossible for my children and me to live in peace and quiet in the house,” recalls Svetlana from a local community. After she asked for help from the paralegal, Svetlana managed to file a compaint for a restriction order, and later received qualified legal aid from the National Legal Aid Council.

Please watch the video below for Svetlana’s complete story and more details on the impact of paralegals’ activity.
