WHAT WE DO IN EUROPE AND ROMANIA
Terre des hommes (Tdh) is the leading Swiss child relief agency. Founded in 1960, we are committed to improving the lives of millions of the world's most vulnerable children. Through our innovative protection projects, we provide assistance to over four million children and their families in almost forty countries each year. In Europe, Tdh intervenes directly or indirectly in many countries, relying on teams based in Budapest, Albania, Greece, Kosovo, Romania, Moldova and Ukraine.
In Romania, children are affected by migration in different ways: some children migrate with their parents or are left at home, while others return or come here for the first time from conflict-ridden countries. Together with our partners, we make sure that Roma migrant students are integrated into the educational system of their host countries. To facilitate the integration of refugee children in Romania, we get them involved in educational, social and sports activities and connect them with the young people here.
