Field Report – February (1)

Overview

 

From February 5th to February 20th, RAS Field Team has been in contact with 116 new arrivals. The most represented groups among new arrivals were citizens of Iraq (28%), Pakistan (28%) and Iran (21%).

During this period, 154 interviews were conducted and information was provided to 183 persons.

The need for NFIs is the most urgent in cases of new arrivals, who are sometimes forced to wait several days before they get registered by the police. These persons arrive in Belgrade not adequately prepared to spend nights outdoors, without blankets or sleeping bags, and with no legal options or financial means to seek shelter in private accommodation.

Although the number of persons in need of targeted NFI distribution is relatively small (approximately 2-3 persons a day), it is clear that the items in demand are essential for the prolonged exposure to winter conditions in Serbia.
