Damage from fire at REF HQ estimated at almost €50,000 (HUF 15,000,000)

“We are thankful that no one was injured, but it will take us at least a year to rebuild REF’s archives and replace equipment lost in the fire.”

Roma Education Fund (REF) is searching for new office space for its headquarters as a result of the devastating fire which has displaced 25 staff. The extra expenses associated with such an urgent move are enormous, on top of the material damage inflicted by the smoke and fire which was finally extinguished after several hours. 

 


Are you a past REF beneficiary who has been able to advance academically or professionally because of REF’s help? Are you a supporter who knows the value of investing in, educating and engaging our Roma children, youth and families?

Please consider donating to ensure that REF headquarters can quickly bounce back from these losses and continue our meaningful programs and services in sixteen countries.
