Continuation of the humanitarian assistance for refugees and migrants in the Republic of Serbia

The objective of the project Continuation of the humanitarian assistance for refugees and migrants in the Republic of Serbia is to contribute to the psychosocial wellbeing and improvement of living conditions for refugees and migrants in Serbia.

Within this project, the work of Caritas laundry services in Kikinda, Krnjaca and Adasevci is supported, where Caritas provides services of washing and drying clothes and bedding of refugees from these reception centers on a daily level. Caritas also provides reception centers for refugees and migrants with items for the personal hygiene of refugees and hygiene of the premises. In the Caritas laundry service in Kikinda assistance is also provided to the local poor population. Since the laundry service in Adaševci and Krnjača are located within reception centers, access is not allowed to the local population, so the decision was made to use Caritas laundry service in Zemun for the needs of the local population on the territory of the Srem Diocese.

In addition, the work of the psycho-social support teams in Bujanovac, Vranje, Bogovađa and Krnjaca, animation and education activities in Principovac, as well as transport of refugees from the Reception Center in Subotica to the Hungarian border, where they can legally apply for asylum in Hungary, are also supported within this projects. All activities are carried out in cooperation with the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration of the Republic of Serbia.

The project is financially supported by Caritas Germany.
