Te Aud Romania (TAR) has rather quickly turned into a support organisation for Ukrainian refugees and we want to thank everyone that decided to join us on this journey.
Our charity has its main offices 70 kms from one of the borders and we are committed to create a response fund and provide ongoing support to facilitate their stay in the region for as long as necessary.
The past week has probably been one of the hardest weeks we have experienced in a long time. A time of incredible stress, constant dynamic and change and above all, a time of support.
This is a short update on our activity on the ground for the past week:
There is still a lot more to be done. Besides all of the above mentions, there is a constant need of hygiene products and baby products. We are on the look out for partners to put together personal care kits for women refugees and for their children, whether on the move or asylum seekers in Romania. These people need them now more than ever. One cannot even imagine what they are going through.
We aim to keep you posted as much as we can, whilst at the same time we want to protect the exposure of the refugees, considering the dramatic situation they are facing.
Amidst everything that is going on at the moment, we continue to run our programs as usual and take care of the ones within our regional community as well.
On the 5th March, the first rugby tag tournament from our Mini Rugby for all program took place in the village of Berchisesti, Suceava. With the support of the Romanian Rugby Federation and the county division for sport and youth, we have gathered together almost 100 children, aged 6 – 10, from 6 rural schools in Suceava county for a very fun and engaging indoor sport day. The event was facilitated by the School in Berchisesti and support from local sports teachers.
At the same time, the first week of March brought with itself group counselling activities for the rural schools in Dolhestii Mari and Dolhestii Mici, Suceava county. Children aged 6 to 16 years old have learned about bullying and its negative effects, as well as ways to nurture and develop a high self esteem from a young age.
