This is why migrants are living on the streets in arctic cold in Serbia

Lack of space in government facilities and fear of illegal deportations keep people out in freezing winter conditions

Up to 2000 refugees and other migrants are living on the streets in Serbia, risking their lives under appalling conditions in arctic temperatures. There are not sufficient places in government sites, and many people also fear illegal deportations by Serbian authorities. Oxfam is on the ground, working with local partners to distribute warm clothes and other essential items to migrants so they can stay warm and survive.
