The European Union has secured another 13 million Euro to support Serbia’s efforts at managing migrations in 2021, the Belgrade-based EU Info Center said on Tuesday.

A press release recalled that the EU has donated 130 million Euro to help Serbian state institutions manage migrations and to support migrants in the past six years when the number of migrants increased. The EU support helped Serbia implement a comprehensive approach to the problem including housing and food for migrants, medical and other services for refugees through the Ministries of Health and Education as well as reinforced border management.

The current EU support to migrantion management in Serbia has proved to be a crucial and sustainable program during the coronavirus pandemic when the number of housed migrants was more than 9,000 at times, the press release said.
