RMF’s Presence in the Balkans

Helping Refugees

Since January 2016, RMF Balkans 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, and when most refugees and migrants in the area were relocated to refugee camps, RMF Balkans and its medical services moved to the camps along with our patients.

Hygiene and Dignity Kits

Meeting Specific Needs

The winterization project was launched in late 2017 and continued throughout the year 2018. RMF Balkans is still distributing hygiene and dignity kits at 6 camps throughout Serbia: Bogovađa, Banja Koviljača, Obrenovac, Krnjača, Kikinda, and Bosilegrad. In cooperation with the Commissariat for Refugees and Migration, hygiene and dignity kits are distributed according to the needs of each camp. During the reporting period, we distributed 389 hygiene and dignity kits. This project supports migrants of all ages with kits designed for babies and young children, men, and women. The project has significantly improved personal hygiene and helped prevent the spread of infectious diseases within these 6 camps. RMF Balkans is the only organization in Serbia that distributes complete hygiene kits to refugees and migrants.

  • Women’s dignity kits include: menstrual pads, cotton swabs, a toothbrush and toothpaste, an undershirt, toilet paper, laundry detergent, wet and dry wipes, soap, and shampoo.
