SKAL supports refugees from the war in Ukraine

It is almost a week now that Ukraine is under the attack of the Russian’s Federation army and already there are a million refugees in Europe.

Refugees need IMMEDIATE help. It takes days to organize all these people and to provide new accommodation, documents, food and health care. Schooling will be the next issue as almost half of the refugees are children.

SKAL Bucharest has been on the front line since the beginning as Romania has a direct border with Ukraine. Our Skalleagues are fundraising, loading trucks with winter clothes, blankets, sleeping bags, medical equipment and food.

The president of SKAL Bucharest, Florin Tancu, says that “since the beginning of the war we felt involved. We just cannot let our European neighbours alone. The humanitarian issue is getting so big that we feel overwhelmed and we need support from Skalleagues“.

Skal Bucharest is working together with HORA Romania, the hotel and restaurant association.

Skal Bucharest opened a special bank account in Euro where it is possible to send donations that will be used to help refugees in Romania.
