on the move
Starting in Sarajevo, Bosnia in 2018, we now support organisations in Bosnia, Serbia, Poland, Lithuania and Romania. Hundreds, at times thousands of people survive on the streets while they prepare to move on to the EU. During winter they endure bitter cold. Many are broke, tired and hungry, others need medical attention. We work with local grassroot groups to offer what’s most needed and follow our three principles:
- Focus on the basics: food, clothes, shelter and medical care
- Focus on those who need it most: people who can’t get support anywhere else
- Provide for everyone in need: we make sure we can help everyone equally
