Property developer Globalworth is providing 12,000 sqm of its portfolio in Romania and Poland for Ukraine war humanitarian relief efforts. The spaces will be used to accommodate refugees and provide them with related logistical support as well as depositing and sorting the donations. 

The shelters will be operated by local authorities such as the City of Warsaw and the City of Bucharest and NGOs, such as the Red Cross Foundation and Geeks for Democracy. 

"The growing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine with millions of refugees crossing the Polish and Romanian borders is a real tragedy that requires meaningful actions that can make a positive difference. At Globalworth, we have always stood by those in need, and it could not be different now as this unimaginable crisis continues to unfold. Providing shelter for refugees and storage for food and medical supplies is the first step in our humanitarian relief efforts, but as the needs of those affected change, we continue to look at different ways in which we can help. We hope that a peaceful resolution will be achieved the soonest possible," said Dimitris Raptis, Globalworth Group CEO. 

In Romania, the company is offering two office floors in the BOB office building in Bucharest which can host up to 700 refugees and a logistics space in Chitila Logistics Hub, where donations will be stored and sorted before reaching those in need. In Poland, the Warta Tower office building will host up to 500 refugees. The efforts are carried out under the Space for Ukraine initiative.
