Refugee children in Belgrade as the victims of violence?

Serbian institutions responsible for the care of minors do not have data on cases of sexual abuse of refugee children and migrants, that are traveling alone and unaccompanied, seeking shelter in one of the Western European countries.

Crossing into Hungary, with nothing but hope

The border town of Subotica, in northern Serbia, stands as a crude example of the terrible conditions experienced by thousands of people stranded across the Balkans.
As they try to cross the border with Hungary, they are routinely pushed back by police. Many of them live in makeshift camps. To survive, they rely on the assistance from volunteers and aid organizations, including Oxfam.

Smuggling of refugees: Making profits on other people’s misfortune

Several thousand refugees in Serbia, after the closure of the West Balkan route they were passing through, is waiting for Europe to open the borders, or to try and reach the desired country with smugglers, risking their own lives. Refugees, whose number in Europe has not been this high since the Second World War, are finding ways to avoid border crossings because they cannot pass them legally. Smugglers are earning money on other people’s misfortune, and organized crime has been flourishing.
