As a part of its emergency aid campaigns IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation continues to deliver food, clothes, and other basic needs of vulnerable people around the world.

“Sleep on the Concrete, Warm Up by Open Fire” 

IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation Deputy Head in charge of Press Serkan Nergis flied to Belgrade in order to follow the aid distribution in the field. Nergis noted that they delivered aid to refugees sleeping on the concrete floor in the cold weather. Nergis reported that refugees, who have a hard time to have access to food, are living in squalor in abandoned buildings and trying to warm up by burning the rubbish they found on the streets.

Serbian government allows only food and blankets delivered to the refugees who refuse to move to the camps due to various reasons. So the refugees are awaiting the aid that would come from the charities.

Refugees from Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan. Iraq, Eritrea, Azerbaijan, and Somalia are hoping to move to European Union countries.
