ZAGREB, 16 March 2022 - The Solidarna Foundation on Wednesday reported that it has set up a fund to help refugees fleeing Ukraine in the wake of the Russian invasion of that country, particularly women and children who have found refuge in Croatia.

The foundation will follow the crisis and use the fund to respond to the needs of refugees and their families in Croatia. It will conduct activities in coordination with civil society groups and public bodies to provide short-term assistance and support as well as long-term support for the refugees.

"That includes an open channel for emergency support to families and field workers in ensuring emergency accommodation, support to humanitarian organisations and coordination with public bodies and NGOs, as well as 'mapping' needs to develop instruments of fast financial support," the foundation said. 

Long-term support includes organising education for refugees, tending to their psycho-social needs and legal support.

More information on how to make a donation is available on the foundation's website.
