Challenge

The heaviest rains and floods recorded in 120 years have struck the people in Serbia, leaving thousands of children homeless, without food, water, warm and dry clothes. More than 10,000 people have been evacuated, but because of destroyed roads and bridges, it is difficult to reach all the victims. About 5,000 children have been displaced, left without any clothes, shoes and other necessities. Their parents have lost all produce, businesses and jobs.

Solution

This project will enable Pomoc deci to respond quickly and help affected children and their families with immediate assistance in clothes, shoes and basic necessities. Your support will allow Pomoc deci also to provide textbooks and other school supplies to the children for September when the new school year starts. As relief moves into recovery, assistance will help victims regain their livelihoods and will help children continue with education.

Long-Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide both immediate relief and recovery. Organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often the in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. Once recovery work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts.
