February 2022. The worst seemed behind us, and no one could have ever imagined something even worse than a pandemic. And the Ukrainian armed conflict emerged.

Located within 70 kms of the Ukrainian border, we have taken on, from the very beginning, the role of support organisation from everyone fleeing away from the conflict.

Whilst the first two weeks of our Ukrainian refugee crisis have been focused on providing immediate response solutions, coordination mechanisms have now started to work and whilst we are still continuing to provide immediate solutions to various situations, we are now at the same time, directing our attention to the development of medium to long term solutions. Because we are all in this within the long run.

Within the past month, TAR invested over 50,000 Euros as a response to the crisis. Our support has taken various forms, based on the correlated need from the ground: immediate response and support for individual refugee situations, accommodation within refugee centres, equipping refugee centres with necessary items, development of transit, baby and children kits, medicine and other medical necessities, transports over the border to support those still left in Ukraine and so on.

Te Aud Romania has offered logistical, financial and humanitarian support over 50,000 Euros, ever since the Ukrainian refugee crisis has started. All of this was made possible with support from individual donors, as well as a high number of national and international partners that have joined our endeavours.

As a charity focused on non-formal educational programs for children, we will work alongside national and international partners to develop medium to long term solutions to integrate Ukrainian refugee children within the community and provide a safe and appropriate environment to alleviate the pain and grow.

  • Over 50 individual cases solved
  • Over 300 children cared for
  • Over 500 kits distributed
  • 10 LifeStraw community purifiers sent to refugee camps across Romania and in Ukraine
  • 1000 individual transit water purifiers distributed
  • Over 10 refugee centres that we are in close contact with to support with needs and requirements


April 2022 shall mark the start of the distribution of our fully equipped schoolbags in schools where Ukrainian refugees started to study.

At the same time, alongside UK partners and institutional national partners, we shall provide the Siret border with over 10,000 goody transit bags for children, in accordance to age, as they cross the border.

Whilst we are constantly working on further integration measures and lifelong support.

Some days, I wish I would have a magic wand... to end all problems, uncertainties and make us love each other more. Unfortunately, none of us has one. We only have today, the moment and the impact we manage to create/bring to our communities. 

We are living in a constanty changing world, governed by information and technology. Some days, I feel like everyone is turning their attention from the smallest and simpliest solutions we have in hand to bring change in our children. 

Te Aud Romania uses sport as a transfer tool, to promote social inclusion and development in a non formal educational system. Because, don't we all know that children learn best through play? 

As of November 2021, we have launched Mini Rugby for all - a program where sport teachers are heavily encouraged to promote the values of rugby across children aged 6 to 13 across seven schools in rural areas of Romania. We will second that with monthly creative and personal development workshops, in accordance with children's needs and potential for character building. 

Through this endeavour, we aim to support 140 children across seven different disadvantaged communities and we need your help to achieve that number. 

Please join us in this journey!

Dear supporter, 


We trust you are well and our email finds you in good spirits. 

We are slowly approaching the end of summer in Romania and with that we have a new start of the rugby season. 

Rugby in particular and sport in general has been heavily affected because of the worldwide pandemic. However, for us, this means we will have to continue to stay focused and contribute even more to the further development of rugby; but more so to the further development of youngsters through rugby. 

Therefore, next week we will launch our fifth edition of Rugby for all - one of the most complex non formal educational programs in Romania that supports junior rugby players from disadvantaged backgrouds. The project supports 40 youngsters on an annual basis. This year, we are opening up to fill at least 15 places that have been vacated due to our mentees finishing high-school and making their next move in life. 

Rugby in particular, and sport in general is probably one of the most powerful tools we have at hand to generate change within our community. 

Let's work together to create stronger communities! 

Thank you for your continuous support - every little counts!

Dear rugby supporters, 


We are happy to announce that competitions on the field have restarted for the Romanian season of 2021. 

For now, only the senior competitions has started and we are still waiting on information if and when the junior competition will restart. 

Our senior rugby club has affiliated quite a few junior players, a lot of whom have managed to play within the first two matches of the season this month. 

Our senior team is comprised of a mix of experienced players and junior players - enabling us to create a learning and development environment for eveyone involved. 

The pandemic competition however puts budgetary constraints on us financially, as every player needs to get tested for Covid for every match. This means an additional expense of roughly 10,000 Eur per annum - in a year where funding has diminished largely. 

Any support we can get now is a bonus towards the development of rugby worldwide. 


Thank you

Dear supporters, 


I trust you are all well and my message finds you in good spirits. 

Unfortunately, here in Romania we are still feeling the negative effects of the pandemic on sport. We have managed to affiliate a high number of junior players within the senior team, which has played 2 matches throughout the course of November. However, the matches were played with closed doors. 

Whilst we are still trying to make sense of what will come next, we are encouraging everyone to not lose faith and continue to support rugby worldwide. 

We strongly believe the world of sports needs us now more than ever!

Your support and donations would be much appreciate and contribute to the future development of Romanian Rugby!
