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.
