Rivers have burst their banks across the region with three months of rain falling in just a few days. Tens of thousands of people have been forced from their homes by the deadly flooding.
Caritas Serbia National Coordinator Darko Tot said, “Flooding has caused a huge natural disaster across the region. It’s impossible to measure as the emergency is still ongoing. Some of the rivers are continuing to swell and the worst could be yet to come.
“Some towns have been completely wiped out. For the people who live there, it will be very hard to return.
“Many poor families have lost their farms and their livestock have been killed. Among the aid we will be providing will be food for the animals that have survived. It’s vital to keep them alive. We’ll also be looking at long-term support once the immediate humanitarian needs have passed.
