DELIVERY: Save the Children Centre in Belgrade, Serbia

Expedition Press Release

DeliverAid Expedition Provides Toys and Learning Materials to help Save The Children’s efforts in Serbia. 

London, UK, April 12th, 2017 – The DeliverAid team dropped off a delivery at the Save the Children Centre in Belgrade, Serbia – which supports & educates children at risk.

The team provided a variety of different supplies, ranging from toys and stationary for the children, who are desperate for learning materials to help them get an education to enable a brighter future.

Hundreds of new refugees and migrants, many of them children, arrive in Serbia every day despite the prospects of sleeping rough and having to forage for food wherever they can find it. Although Serbia is not part of the European Union, it borders a number of countries which are, such as Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, and has become a holding point for those hoping to reach Western Europe. Thousands are currently stuck in Serbia not able to cross the border, especially since Hungary is taking increasingly more severe measures regarding not only the refugees within the borders, but also to stem the numbers crossing their borders.

NOTES FOR EDITORS

DeliverAid was founded in January 2017 to provide sustainable and direct assistance to children who are at risk or face disadvantage in refuges, orphanages, and camps internationally. The team’s efforts are powered by a sponsorship syndicate of philanthropic businesses. The DeliverAid team itself consists of a small core of media and project professionals who are looking to do something worthwhile, who are ably aided by volunteers both in the UK and overseas. Wherever possible, the team purchases supplies from UK charities so that they also substantial benefit from the expeditions. As well as delivering supplies, the team also provides computer equipment and training as part of their Bootstrap Programme to allow the children to develop skills that will not only assist themselves in building a better life, but which will also create employment and opportunity within their community.
