Appeal for donations: Help for refugees in Serbia – help us!

The next caravan project is just around the corner and we can only realize it with your help: In December, we will be sending a truck full of relief supplies to the almost forgotten refugees in Subotica/Serbia, near the Hungarian border.

Hundreds of refugees live there under absolutely inhumane conditions. They hide in the woods, abandoned buildings or wait in tents and makeshift shelters, without access to running water or food, in all weathers. Again and again they look for their chance to cross the border into Hungary. The icy winter is approaching and people have neither a safe roof over their heads nor warm clothing or food. Many of the people suffer from frostbite, malnutrition and injuries.

New refugees from the south of Serbia arrive in the region every day. The new arrivals usually have no warm clothing or warm shoes and are often completely malnourished and dehydrated. Most of them are young men between the ages of 20 and 30.

Donations in kind and money are urgently needed, which are handed over locally in cooperation with our partner NGO “Collective Aid”. We have already helped refugees in Calais/France with this NGO and know how good, serious and committed Collective Aid is to helping people in need on the ground.

If as many people as possible make a small contribution, great things can be achieved and need can be alleviated. Let’s set a sign of humanity together!
