The Archdiocese of Bucharest has started a fundraiser that will go on until March 10 to support Ukrainian refugees and provide housing for 300 people.
“These funds will be used for faster intervention. When they identify problems, our colleagues from Suceava, from Maramureș, from Iași signal certain needs to us and we can intervene to buy things locally that we can offer to the refugees,” Fr. Ionuț Tutea, a counselor at the Social-Philanthropic Sector of the Archdiocese of Bucharest, explained on air at Radio Trinitas.
“We have already identified more than 100 accommodation spaces for refugees, which means that we can accommodate over 300 people in parish houses or other spaces specially set up and made available by parishes in Bucharest and within the archdiocese. We hope that in the coming days, we will send the first bus to bring refugees here,” Fr. Ionuț Tutea said.
The archdiocese also helped send a truckload of food aid and essential products for refugees in the Republic of Moldova.
