Humanitarian assistance

Humanitarian assistance granted by Romania is emergency assistance delivered to countries affected by natural disasters and prolonged armed conflicts, with the purpose of alleviating the consequences on the victims. Humanitarian assistance includes assistance offered in the process of transition from humanitarian crisis to rehabilitation and early reconstruction.

The Government of Romania grants humanitarian assistance voluntarily:

  • directly to the affected state
  • through international organizations
  • through an autonomous fund administered by an international organization
  • through a special fund created specifically to answer a humanitarian crisis
  • through Romanian or foreign NGOs

For granting humanitarian assistance through Romanian or local NGOs it is necessary that the organizations meet the following criteria:

  • experience in the field of humanitarian assistance
  • knowledge of the circumstances and local conditions
  • to prove ownership of means to ensure fast and efficient humanitarian assistance to the persons in need

As an EU member state, Romania grants humanitarian assistance through the EU budget. More information on the humanitarian assistance of the EU here.
