The migration situation in the Balkans has evolved significantly since the beginning of 2016. The closure of the so-called Balkan route and the EU-Turkey deal led to new challenges for thousands of refugee children and their families who got stranded from one day to the next in Serbia, Macedonia or Greece.

“The closure itself has created an incredible psychological pressure on those people seeking for international protection”, says Martin Morand, responsible for Tdh’s emergency programmes in South Europe.
