The Romanian Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in America has announced a further donation for Ukrainian refugees totaling $70,000. The collection was taken after His Eminence Archbishop Nathaniel and the Romanian Episcopate received word that the North West Provinces in Romania were in need of financial aid to care for the refugees which have crossed its border in the wake of the conflict in Ukraine. The number of refugees in Romania is approaching one million displaced persons.

The $70,000 was sent directly to His Holiness Patriarch Daniel and the Romanian Orthodox Church to assist with the crisis particularly in the affected North West Provinces.

Earlier this year, the Orthodox Church in America partnered with the Eleos agency of the Polish Orthodox Church. The combined fundraising efforts of the OCA now totals just under $810,000.

International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) continues the relief effort for Ukrainian refugees and other humanitarian crises around the globe. IOCC is currently working in both Romania and Poland to ease the suffering of Ukrainians fleeing the conflict and still accepting donations. Please continue to give generously.
