Since March this year, SERA Romania, CARE France and FONPC have definitely been some of the most important partners of our organization in the projects dedicated to Ukrainian refugees. Starting in March 2022, we have developed many projects for Ukrainian children together. Over the past 7 months in one of our joint projects, we have managed to help more than 5300 people, in most cases families, mothers and children. From translations to support with food or equipment in accommodation centres or customs, information, educational and socializing activities for children, mothers, grandmothers, visits to doctors and much more. Even though the influx of refugees has decreased a lot, there are still over 500 people benefiting from this project every month.
Great was our joy, when in October Galați and Brăila Inima de Copil Centers for Refugees were visited by the representatives of CARE France, CARE Netherlands and SERA Romania.
It has been and is extremely important to understand together the impact of the program, how the needs of refugees have changed, what the prospects for the coming months are and how they can be helped more in integration. Let’s talk about what we can do in the new situations of humanitarian emergency that may arise due to the continuation of the war, the great proximity of Galati to the border with Ukraine (24 km away) and the coming of winter. And finally, we have been looking at new ways to develop partnership in order to support people who need help, be it refugee mothers and children, or children from vulnerable families in the south-eastern part of Romania.
“We thank our guests for their visit and, obviously, for being with us in the programs we run in partnership. We are convinced that together we can do a lot more for those who need us.” (Anna Burtea, executive director of the Heart of a Child Foundation)
