Just a few weeks before the Queen’s Jubilee, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales has visited Ukrainian refugees – and met World Vision staff who are helping them – in Romania.
Prince Charles visited a refugee shelter in Bucharest, heard first-hand stories and discovered what agencies like World Vision are doing to support families fleeing war.
Over 6 million refugees have fled Ukraine since the war began. From the start, World Vision staff have supported refugees in Romania. Aid workers, local groups and volunteers are continuing to work to meet the needs of displaced families.
A group of those dedicated individuals received a warm acknowledgement from His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales when he visited Bucharest’s RomExpo – a huge conference centre turned into a one-stop shop for refugees.
Multiple agencies, including World Vision, are working at RomExpo to help meet a range of needs for displaced families. World Vision has helped provide food, clothes, baby supplies and internet access for the hundreds of refugees visiting the centre each day. World Vision staff also run a safe child play area, with weekly entertainment.
