Emergency assistance for elderly persons in rural areas

During the last week of April 2022, Philanthropy distributed emergency assistance to elderly people living in rural areas in Kragujevac, Kraljevo and Ruma. 600 elderly people and their families received food and WASH kits, thus compensating for their own needs that arose as a result of the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Food and WASH kits were provided through the project „ASSIST – Action to Strengthen Solidarity in Serbia and Moldova in Times of COVID 19 to Protect Older People’s Health and Wellbeing“, implemented in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection of the Republic of Austria and the organisation Brot für die Welt.
