Refugees receive the kits at Krnjaca camp
RMF’s Presence in the Balkans
Providing Relief to Refugees
Since January 2016, RMF Serbia has been responding to the refugee crisis in Serbia by providing comprehensive protection and medical services to persons of concern. Our teams began by working 24/7 throughout the Belgrade city center. Once most refugees/migrants in the area were relocated to refugee camps, RMF Serbia and its medical services moved to the camps along with our patients.
Hygiene and Dignity Kits
Reducing the Spread of Disease
The winterization project was successfully launched in January of this year. RMF Serbia continues to distribute hygiene kits at six camps throughout Serbia: Obrenovac Transit Center, Asylum Center Bogovađa, Asylum Center Krnjača, Asylum Center Banja Koviljača, Bosilegrad Transit Center, and Kikinda Transit Center. In cooperation with the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration, hygiene kits are being distributed according to the needs of each camp. This project covers migrants of all ages, with kits designed for babies, men, and women.
Women’s dignity kits include: menstrual pads, cotton swabs, toothbrush and toothpaste, an undershirt, toilet paper, laundry detergent, wet and dry wipes, soap, and shampoo. Men’s kits include: towels, razors, toothpaste and toothbrush, shaving cream, an undershirt, cotton swabs, shampoo, soap, and toilet paper. Kits for babies include: diaper cream, baby powder, cloth diapers, shampoo, soap, disposable diapers, and a onesie.
The project has significantly improved hygiene and helped prevent the spread of infectious diseases in 6 refugee camps throughout Serbia. RMF Serbia is the only organization in Serbia that distributes complete hygiene kits to refugees and migrants.
