Norwegian Ambassador to Serbia Jorn Gjelstad today signed an agreement with representatives of Group 484 on additional funding to provide humanitarian assistance during the epidemic #COVID19 for vulnerable population groups in Serbia, Montenegro and Northern Macedonia

Within the project ‘Support to Migrants and Local Communities in Serbia, Montenegro and North Macedonia’, the Norwegian Embassy in Belgrade has provided an extension of Group 484 intervention, in response to the new COVID-19 epidemic situation.


The Norwegian Embassy has once again recognized the urgency of the situation and provided additional funding to be used to support civil society organizations in providing humanitarian assistance to vulnerable groups, as well as facilitating access to services impeded by restrictive measures in Serbia, Montenegro, and North Macedonia.

The priority of this support will be assistance to local communities. Some of the activities we will support in the upcoming period are the provision of food, hygiene packages for the most vulnerable categories of residents, the organization of volunteer support groups in day-care centres, soup kitchens, as well as the procurement and distribution of necessary hygiene supplies, etc.

The project will continue to support asylum and reception centres to minimize the spread of COVID-19 virus among migrants as a high-risk category.
