Romania is located in south-eastern Europe and borders Ukraine, among other countries. Due to the war in Ukraine, the country has seen an increase in refugees. While some of the refugees remain in Romania, many also travel further west into the Schengen area.

The poeple are arriving with only the most basic necessities and the need for food, hygiene items and other everyday products is high. Together with our partner organisations, we support arriving refugees as well as those who are in transit.

Humanitarian aid in Ukraine

The ongoing Russian war in Ukraine has already forced millions of people to flee their homes, including many children and young people. According to the United Nations, around 18 million people in Ukraine are in need of humanitarian aid. Since February 2022, AWO International has been working with local partner organisations to provide emergency relief and reconstruction.
