Since the beginning of the war in February 2022, over 1 million Ukrainians have crossed the border into Romania. Most of them continued their journeys to other European countries, but around 100,000 Ukrainian refugees are currently in Romania. HIAS is supporting local partners and working to help refugees in multiple ways, including: direct assistance, counseling, promoting economic opportunities, and protecting the rights of refugees, particularly women, girls, and LGBTQ community members, so they can live free from violence.

Our Work

HIAS began operations in September 2022 to help refugees displaced by the Ukrainian crisis and support refugees in Romania more generally. We are highlighting assistance in the areas of economic inclusion, gender-based violence, and mental health, as well as protection and food assistance. HIAS Romania is working closely with partners and working directly in underserved areas serving the biggest concentrations of refugees in the country, focusing primarily on community strengthening, integration, and self-reliance.

We work to protect the right of women, girls, and LGBTQ communities to access their full potential and live free from violence by supporting survivors, mitigating risks, and transforming beliefs that perpetuate GBV.

End Gender-Based Violence

HIAS’ community-based mental health programs promote the well-being of individuals, families, and communities affected by crisis and conflict so they can heal and rebuild their lives.

Provide Legal Support

Our economic inclusion programs ensure that refugees have economic opportunities to earn sustainable income and start their lives anew.

We work to protect the right of women, girls, and LGBTQ communities to access their full potential and live free from violence by supporting survivors, mitigating risks, and transforming beliefs that perpetuate GBV.
