Fundatia Umanitara ASSIST met with 26 people who are momentarily living inside a company headquarters. The building turned refugee center had been a place for families transiting #Romania. Yet, the situation changed when more and more families said they would like to remain in Suceava at least temporarily.
What we received in return was far more meaningful. We saw colorful drawings and thank you messages.
Thus, we went to the village of Ilișești where an after-school was transformed into a center for refugees. We aided the center with food supplies (canned foods, fruits, cereal and dairy), bedding, sanitary products and a freezer.
Fundația Umanitară ASSIST partnered up with Asociația Donează - Gura Humorului, yesterday. We visited the refugee center from Mănăstirea Humorului, where an entire community tries to help Ukrainian mothers and their children.
The Mănăstirea Humorului center was a transit point for well over 3,000 refugees in their efforts to reach certain cities from Romania or abroad. The center hosted 315 people.
Since most of the refugees at this location are children, we immediately understood the importance of having a clean space. Therefore, we donated an array of cleaning products that were much needed.
