Over 60% of refugees in Serbia are unaccompanied minors and there are very few organizations working there. The winters have been some of the coldest on record. Thousands of young refugees are living in camps and also in abandoned warehouses, train stations and parks. They are in subzero temperatures and in dire need of food, clothing, feminine, hygiene, and baby supplies, tents, sleeping bags and educational supplies.
Our volunteer team headed to Serbia February 16th 2017 to provide humanitarian aid to refugees forced to survive in unlivable conditions. We hand-delivered these much needed items, as well as partnered with local organizations to teach classes and give workshops to women and children.
We provided 40,000 meals to refugees living in an abandoned train station, cooked and served many of those meals! , provided educational materials and computers to a school for refugee children, sports equipment for children in an unaccompanied minors camp, and took kids that hadn’t seen a playground in over a year from a camp on a field trip to let them remember they are children for a day.
