In March 2022, with the start of the Ukrainian war, a refugee crisis began. As it did, something amazing happened. Roma churches, working in concert with one another and international aid agencies, took the lead in providing aid to fellow Roma fleeing from war.
Often seen as takers by the majority population, the Roma community were suddenly in the forefront, providing housing, food and funds for travel.
Roma Learning to Fly is blessed to be part of this ongoing effort. To date, over $17,000 has been donated, providing immediate housing and needed supplies for Roma refugees.
