JRS Romania runs many projects to assist refugees and forced migrants in Romania. We aim to help refugees participate in all aspects of society and to uphold their dignity so that they can make choices about their future. Through LINK-IT, we support refugees with access to the labour market, while the SHARE project helps small municipalities who have welcomed relocated refugees. Through campaigning, we raise awareness about refugee issues among Romanian society in order to foster social inclusion.
