The AID FOR REFUGEES project launched in the first days of March 2022, when families with children were fleeing the war to cross the border to Romania. More than 160 refugees who arrived in Bucharest received immediate support through the Foundation - accommodation in a partner hotel unit, three hot meals per day, social counseling, transport or transfers to the bus stations or airport, and individually personalized assistance as needed to each family. Some refugees continued their journey to other countries or found long-term solutions in Romania.
Starting in April, the AID FOR REFUGEES expanded to support the urgent or medium-term needs of refugee families with children, offering support to other NGOs working on the borders of Ukraine or implementing activities in other areas of the country. We also provide hosting, educational activities, and social counseling to a steady number of 70 refugees arriving in Bucharest, primarily mothers, children, and the elderly.
AID FOR REFUGEES ensures direct support of refugees arriving in Romania, with hosting and essential services in Bucharest or supporting organizations working directly with refugees in areas close to the borders or hosted in other communities. We aim to serve more than 1250 refugees with first aid and short-term social support so mothers, children, and the elderly can find safety and ensure their basic needs.
