“As a results of the continuing disaster in Ukraine, communities in Romania, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, and Moldova face massive challenges as they work to help massive numbers of incoming refugees. We urge colleagues to engage with local NGOs who know what assist is needed immediately and who can deliver that help on the ground,” said Nøhr Skibsted. “We are engaged on fast-tracking the method for incoming grants purposes from and around Ukraine, with the goal to approve and expedite grants inside weeks as a substitute of months.”
