Humanitarian assistance

Humanitarian assistance

German organization Help provides the humanitarian assistance responding to the emergency situations.

Since the beginning of its activities back in 1999 Help provided the socially vulnerable population in Serbia with a total of over 15.000 tons of food and nearly 1.000 tons of hygiene items. The most in need – refugees and internally displaced persons, as well as domicile poor, were assisted through the distribution of firewood, coal and heating oil. However, the humanitarian assistance expanded to the emergency situation response, providing flood victims in Secanj and Vlasotince with relief items like food, blankets, water pumps, etc.

Total value of the humanitarian assistance provided so far in Serbia, amounts over 5 million Euro.
