Bosnia and Herzegovina – Assistance to Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Migrants (DG ECHO) (ECHO Daily Flash of 13 February 2019)

  • Over 25 530 detected refugees, asylum seekers and migrants have passed through Bosnia and Herzegovina since the beginning of January 2018. An estimated 5 400 are still in-country with over 4 700 assisted by international organisations, mostly in Una-Sana Canton, the north-western part of the country.
  • The European Commission's partners continue providing health, protection, winterised shelter, water and sanitation, food and non-food items in centres of Bira, Borici, Sedra and Miral in the Una-Sana Canton and in Usivak near Sarajevo.
  • Following the increase of security-related incidents and tensions inside the sites mainly due to overcrowding, poor quality services and lack of safety, humanitarian partner organisations will start to relocate vulnerable groups to safer locations.
