EEA & Norway grants for the humanitarian refugee crisis in Ukraine

Published: Wednesday, 13 Apr 2022

Together with the donors Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, whom we thank for their openness, we are helping these days in the humanitarian crisis.

The effort of our fellow programme operators - FRDS, FDSC, MAI, UEFISCDI, Innovation Norway Romania, has been very important in this process and the results of teamwork today make it possible, as:

  • 2,000,000 euro to reach the Active Citizenship Fund Programme, managed by the FDSC, to support NGOs directly involved in the refugee crisis;
  • 500,000 euro to be allocated for the purchase of equipment and fuel needed by IGSU;
  • 330,000 euro to be carried out through the Romanian Social Development Fund to help NGOs that today provide emergency services (food, accomodation, counselling, medical services) and interventions to prevent trafficking in human beings in the context of the refugee crisis;
  • 100,000 euro form the Research Programme managed by the UEFISCDI to reach 2 partner universities in the programme (Dunarea de Jos University in Galati and Stefan cel Mare University in Suceava) to cover part of the daily costs of food and accomodation for refugees.

Thank you all!
