A group of 1,800 Ukrainian refugees, currently living in Romania, is to receive assistance from the Norwegian Refugee Council in cooperation with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) office in Romania. The project, called “Winterization Response for Refugees from Ukraine” aims at providing clothing for the cold winter season, bedding kits and fan heaters for refugees, particularly for those of the 1,800 accommodated in private housing. The project will run for 5 months and began on 1 November.

“The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) teams in Romania will work through ADRA… to provide bedding and small items to refugees in collective shelters and for those living in host communities, in addition to heaters to households in rented accommodation,” NRC leaders informed.

“We have been facing a crisis with no way out,” said Cătălin Mantu, ADRA Romania Project Manager. “However, ADRA Romania is always working to fill people’s hearts with hope for tomorrow. Together with our partner, we respond promptly to the needs of Ukrainian refugees…  especially children who will spend their first holidays away from home. We thank the Norwegian Refugee Council for the involvement and funding!”
