Support to the integration of returnee families - family Tonić

20. Sep 2021.

The Tonić family from Lebane was supported during 2020/21 through the project "Support to the Integration of Returnee Families" which the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization (EHO) has been implementing since 2016 with the support of Diakonia Württemberg and Hope for Eastern Europe (HfO).

The project contributes to better integration of returnees from Germany to Serbia, their dignified return and prevention of repeated illegal migration.

As part of the project, the Tonić family was supported by a Start Up Grant - a donation of a trimmer, a lawn mower and a washing machines for concrete surfaces as well as an axe. The family was also supported through the improvement of living conditions - by replacing old windows and doors in order to improve the insulation of the house and save energy. By procuring food and hygiene packages, the family's basic needs were met on a monthly basis.

The support for the family was provided through the Integration Network consisting of 25 local associates, established by the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organization in 2016 with the aim of helping the integration of returnee families returning from the Federal Republic of Germany to the Republic of Serbia under the Readmission Agreement.
