The Support for Local Response to Refugee Crisis project is an 18-month activity implemented by the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation. The project improves the capabilities of select local self-governments, volunteer organizations, and civil society organizations to respond to the current European migration crisis. By its design the project also helps municipalities to develop strategies and structures to aid them in the event of future manmade and natural crises.
The project is being implemented in:
These municipalities may change depending on migration patterns.
The Foundation works with municipalities with the largest concentration of refugees to ensure communities are prepared to provide temporary refuge to those transiting through Serbia or assistance to those wishing to seek asylum in Serbia.
The Foundation is also strengthening the capacity of Refugee Aid Serbia and Miksaliste, the volunteer and donations coordination centers in Belgrade that provide hot meals and showers for migrants, distribute donations of clothing and hygiene products, and organize volunteers who are supporting refugees throughout the country. An accompanying Public Awareness Campaign will increase Serbians’ understanding of the refugees’ plight.
