Our Serbian member, the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organisation (EHO) is well aware of the asylum seekers and migrants crossing Serbia and of the conditions many of them find themselves struggling with. They have recently launched an Appeal to fund a project in two phases. The target group of this Appeal are migrants located on the territory of the Republic of Serbia, and more specifically the migrant population transiting through Serbia towards the EU: migrants on the road, without shelter and food, especially vulnerable groups of migrants, such as single mothers, pregnant women, mothers with infants, children under 10 years, disabled, elderly people, persons with acute and chronic illnesses.
EHO’s intervention will be divided into two phases and would cover the period from September 2015 to December 2017 (28 months) with a potential for project extension.
During the first pilot phase of the Appeal in the period September-December 2015, EHO will provide emergency relief, arrange for needs’ assessments, baseline survey and will pilot a set of outreach services for migrants. During the second phase of the Appeal in the period January 2016-December 2017, it is envisaged that EHO starts realising long-term assistance for migrants.
A full description of the project along with information on how to support the appeal is here.
