Volunteering action for the migrants in the Balkan route in Subotica, Serbia
On 22nd September, a group of 10 young LDAs volunteers from the Balkan region, all participants of the Regional Youth Forum in Subotica, organized, in collaboration with the Municipality of Subotica, a volunteering action in Subotica, Serbia. They visited the abandoned old brick factory, the temporary settlement for migrants located in Subotica, with the aim of delivering packages of humanitarian aid.
The young volunteers wanted to give their contribution in this difficult situation, trying to help the people in need. Through conversation with the migrant groups the volunteers shared their compassion with the refugees, deeply affected by their stories and experiences. This action in turn motivated the youngsters to participate even more in volunteering actions, in order to provide help to people who need it the most.
The volunteering action was organized in coordination with the Red Cross, the UNHCR delegation and local police, as part of their daily visits and aid delivery.
