North Macedonia: Emergency Preparedness & Response
PIN has applied these approaches to North Macedonia in 2015-16, with our support to local NGOs offering services to groups providing assistance to refugees, and since 2020, by promoting the deinstitutionalisation of people with disabilities.
Humanitarian aid during the refugee crisis in the Balkans
People in Need helps during the ongoing refugee crisis in the Balkans, where currently 140,000 migrants live in local legal and illegal refugee camps in very poor living conditions. Together with the non-profit organizations ComPass 071 in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Fokus Plus in Kosovo, Legis in Northern Macedonia, and the Romanian Logs Association - Social Initiatives Group, we provide humanitarian aid in the form of medical assistance, clothing, food, legal and social counselling, and psychological support.
