What is UER?
Universal Emergency Relief is a non-profit foundation with the purpose and vision of helping vulnerable and needy persons. We are a new and dynamic organisation with our headquarters in London. Our primary purpose is to help children with disabilities and insufficient financial resources. Also, the elderly, orphans, widows are all part of our priorities.
Three years ago, Daniel Bucur, the founder of the organisation, understood God's calling, that of serving those in need, helping the poor, supporting the abandoned and deprived of any form of help. His own family has a history that inspired him when he thought of founding this organisation: his mother grew up in an orphanage and his son was diagnosed with autism.
Together with his friends Catalin Sladariu and Nicu Stoica Ion officially founded Universal Emergency Relief and have placed the grounds of the charity work in Romania at different locations within Sibiu, Olt and Ialomita counties.
UER supports people with special needs and families with difficult situations to help improve welfare and quality of life. The organisation inspired by God's love and with strong christian values is concerned with aiding the outcast and vulnerable people.
