In the midst of the war in Ukraine, which has sparked an unprecedented wave of refugees in Europe, the SOLIDARNA Foundation has established the Solidarity with Ukraine Fund to help refugees who have found safety in the Republic of Croatia.
The number of people who have left their homes to flee the war and save the lives of their children is in the millions. Tens of thousands of refugees arrive daily on the borders with neighbouring Poland, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia and Moldova. Faced with an uncertain future, they leave behind loved ones, jobs and property.
On March 14, 2022, there were over 6,158 Ukrainian refugees in Croatia, most of them women and children, as many as 88%, and an exponential increase is expected in the coming weeks and months. Instructed by previous experiences of refugee crisis, SOLIDARNA intends to welcome and support refugees.
