Refugees fleeing fighting in Macedonia, had a bitter journey as they crossed into Kosovo. They came across small, sometimes snowy mountain passes on foot bringing with them the few items they could carry. They were escaping the fighting in their home country of Macedonia and trying to find safety in another land. Catholic Relief Services sent vehicles to wait for the travelers and then transported thousands of these refugees from the brutal mountains down to Prizren, Kosovo. Once in Prizren, the refugees were placed with host families, some of whom graciously accepted as many as 20 people.
