Program Details

We are a registered NGO set up in early 2017 to provide a unified response to the humanitarian crisis in the Balkans. We work alongside partners such as MSF, Oxfam, and Help Refugees to provide food, clothing and other essential services to refugees and migrants living in, and outside of, camps around Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Activities & Shift

Our main project in Bosnia and Herzegovina for the moment is cooking and distributing food.
We have recently started cooking three meals a day in the camp near Sarajevo. With about 30 volunteers we prepare, cook and serve around 1500 meals every day.
