Macedonia is sending rescue, medical teams, water pumps, power generators, boats, blankets and medicines in aid to flooded areas in Serbia and Bosnia/Herzegovina.

Macedonia's Government made a decision Friday on the scope of the aid as an initial response to the appeal of the two countries for aid, conveyed by the EU Civil Protection Mechanism.

The Protection and Rescue Directorate prepared Saturday the aid package, which is to be sent in the most endangered parts of Serbia and Bosnia.

Yesterday, the European Commission said that several EU member countries had responded to appeals for help from Bosnia/Herzegovina and Serbia.

Within hours of the Serbian request for assistance, Germany, Bulgaria, Austria and Slovenia offered help.
