Obrenovac Transit and Reception Centre

Renovation Plans Finalized

The Commiserate for Refugees and Migration has requested support to renovate a large room on the 1st floor of Building 11 in Obrenovac Transit Centre, to be used for training, film screenings, and educational activities such as health promotion information sessions and integration seminars.

From January 1-March 5, the project plans and designs were finalized. By early March the contractors who provided the lowest quotes were selected.

  • Improve the living conditions of refugees and migrants in Obrenovac Reception and Transit Centre through renovation and ongoing maintenance of facilities.
  • Provide ongoing opportunities for education, entertainment, and socialization at the renovated facilities.

In order to improve the quality of life of refugees and migrants at Obrenovac Reception and Transit Centre, RMF Balkans renovated the first floor of Building 11 at the camp, as well as the reception area. The reconstruction included upgrading existing infrastructure, installing sanitary facilities, and providing basic furniture and necessary equipment.

RMF also built a movie theater and a computer room, called the Asylum Resource Centre (ARC). These facilities have given refugees and migrants greater access to both education and entertainment, as well as enabling them to connect with their families and friends.
