The Prince of Wales, joined by Her Majesty Margareta, Custodian of Romanian Crown visited the Romexpo Donation Centre for Ukrainian refugees in Bucharest, to see at first-hand the excellent response of the Romanian authorities and of international and local organisations to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
During their visit, The Prince of Wales talked to Ukrainians who have fled the war and the volunteers supporting them.
According to the caretakers of the centre, over 1,000 Ukrainians are coming every day, to get free necessities, from food to hygiene products, clothing and shoes, and also to access social services and counsel while in Romania. At national level, over 1 million Ukrainian citizens have entered Romania since the onset of the crisis.
The visit of His Royal Highness to Romexpo follows a series of engagements that he has undertaken in recent months in support of the Ukrainian community, including meeting a displaced Ukrainian family in Canada. His Royal Highness is also widely known for his concerns around humanitarian issues and is closely linked to a number of charities that are offering support to the Ukrainian population, including being President of the British Red Cross.
