Emotional concert in Constanta marks one year of friendship and solidarity between Romanian &Ukraine


Project "A chance for a normal life" celebrates trust and cooperation between local communities and Ukrainian children

Constanta, Romania - On Friday 5 May, the "One Year in Romania" concert took place in the "Ioan N. Roman" County Library and with the support of the Constanta City Hall, an emotional event that celebrated the bonds of friendship and solidarity between Romanian and Ukrainian children in the city. More than 300 children and parents attended the event, representing schools no. 3, 6, 11, 16 and 40, institutions that opened their doors to offer Ukrainian children the chance to live a normal life through educational and extracurricular activities.

In the last year, more than 600 Ukrainian children have benefited from the support and attention of teachers, Romanian parents and the unconditional friendship of their Romanian colleagues. The event highlighted how much children from both communities have learned and grown together.

The performance included dances, poems and songs, through which the Ukrainian children expressed their gratitude and sent a message of peace and hope for a happy childhood. A particularly touching moment was the performance of the folk song "Oh, in the meadow there is a red viburnum" in Ukrainian and Romanian.

The concert is not only a celebration of friendship, but also a recognition of the efforts of all the volunteers and local institutions in Constanta who contributed to the adaptation of the Ukrainian students. The project "A chance for a normal life", initiated by JRS Romania, supports the education of at least 600 Ukrainian children and involves 40 Ukrainian teachers working in schools in Constanta. In total, more than 2000 children are supported by 150 Ukrainian teachers in 23 educational hubs in several cities across the country, including Bucharest, Galati and Ploiesti.
