Working together for a green, competitive and inclusive Europe




In the context of the crisis situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the loss of jobs as well as the restrictions imposed on several areas for all citizens on the territory of Romania have aggravated the difficulties faced by vulnerable groups. The vulnerable groups targeted by the foundation are homeless people / people in informal settlements, people living in overcrowded homes at risk of poverty, people over 65, the unemployed, children, the chronically ill. The low incomes they had, mostly from daily work, were stopped as a result of the cessation of activities / decrease of the incomes of the economic operators for which they worked. The crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated the vulnerable situation of the people affected by the foundation to the point where they have difficulties in ensuring the necessities of basic living (food). Moreover, given their limited access to education, these groups face some of the greatest difficulties in understanding and adopting appropriate behavior with regard to measures to prevent and combat the spread of the new coronavirus. This project aims to support 1,500 vulnerable people in the protection against coronavirus and in increasing the level of information about the crisis situation generated by the Covid-19 pandemic. The beneficiaries of the project are homeless people / people in informal settlements, people living in overcrowded homes at risk of poverty, people over the age of 65, unemployed, children.
