About "Support for Ukrainian Refugees", United Way Romania cause.

More than four million civilians have already fled Ukraine, according to UN.

Since the beginning of this crisis, until 31.03.2022, at 24.00, at national level, 595.755 Ukrainian citizens entered Romania.

Since the beginning of the conflict in the neighboring country, until March 31, more than 4.300 Ukrainian citizens have applied for asylum in Romania.

From February 25, Ukrainian men between the ages of 18 and 60 are not allowed to leave the country. This prohibition is valid during the period of application of martial law; thus, the ones feeling the path of war are: mothers with children and the elderly, the most vulnerable categories.

With the help of the funds raised from participating in this running event, United Way Romania will help refugees in Ukraine by providing products and services of strict necessity, such as:

  • food - while in Romania, refugees need 3 meals a day, but also food for the little ones and formula for babies;
  • hygiene and sanitary products - both for mothers and the elderly (soap, toothpaste, toothbrush) and for babies (diapers, wet wipes);
  • medicines - as needed;
  • transport (either from sorting areas to accommodation centers or for transit through the country);
  • support services and psychological help for families;
  • document support and translation of documents.

Join the United Way Running team and help us make their stay in our country more comfortable and reassure them that the power of humanity overcomes the war!
