EHO-Appeal, support for vulnerable Roma families during Covid-19

Ecumenical humanitarian organization provided humanitarian assistance packages to vulnerable Roma families on the territory of Serbia through the project "EHO-Apel, support for vulnerable Roma families during Covid-19", which was supported by the program Hope for Eastern Europe (Hoffnung fur Osteruropa - HfO ) and Diakonia Württemberg from Germany. In the period from January to May 2021, 130 packages of one-time emergency aid were distributed as a form of emergency intervention to families additionally affected by the crisis caused by the COVID 19 pandemic.      

Given that the mapped families are spread throughout Serbia, the distribution of the packages was carried out through the Network of Local Integration Associates who made sure that the help reached those families who needed it the most.      

Humanitarian aid in the form of food packages, means for personal hygiene and space hygiene was distributed to the most vulnerable Roma residents in the following municipalities and cities of the Republic of Serbia: Novi Sad, Sremska Mitrovica, Vladičin Han, Surdulica, Novi Bečej, Stari Bečej, Bačka Palanka, Smederevska Palanka, Bujanovac, Babušnica, Kikinda, Crepaja, Mali Iđoš, Kruševac, Kragujevac, Lebane, etc.

This distributionis part of the wider efforts of the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization to help eliminate the consequences caused by the coronavirus pandemic in Serbia.
