UKRAINE REFUGEE CRISIS APPEAL
Thanks to your support we have provided food, shelter and assistance to hundreds of refugees and families arriving from Ukraine at the Ukrainian Romanian border, just 3km from our project in Siret.
Siret border became the main crossing point for Ukraine Refugees fleeing into Romania in 2022. Hundreds of thousands of women, children, elderly & people of all nationalities arrived via Siret Border crossing who needed urgent assistance, food & shelter.
Although numbers arriving have reduced significantly since March 2022, we continue to provide assistance when needed whilst maintaining our usual activities .
Our Trustees and Committee Members in U.K. are in regular communication with our partners in Siret to keep up to date with the impact of the ongoing conflict in Ukraine on our activities and the local community.
We supported our sister, Romanian reg. humanitarian organisation, Scoala Pentru Viata, partner agencies, local community and our beneficiaries where possible, and provided contingency funds for the projects future needs during the crisis. Any remaining funds went to the ongoing work of our charity.
Siret is a Romanian border town with a population of approx. 8000. This was a fast moving crisis, and had a major impact on the local community who continue to provide ongoing support to refugees arriving via Siret Border.
Over 99% of all donations go directly to our projects in Romania – all UK admin costs, travel, visits etc are privately funded
