Hundreds of people arrive at the Serbian border with small bags and blankets. After going through the pre-reception centre in Miratovac, they smile and shake hands with each other and with local residents.
“We made it,” said a man from Palmyra, Syria. “Now we must travel on to the northern border and we will finally arrive.” On his mobile phone is a recent picture of his 10-month-old daughter, who is still in Syria. “We don't have enough money, so my family is still there. I will find a way to bring them here, but my dream is to return home when there is no war.”
Three months after Nepal was struck by a devastating 7.8M earthquake, thousands of people continue to require humanitarian assistance in order to meet their basic needs.
Since the earthquake, the Nepal Red Cross Society and the global Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement have focused their efforts on providing relief, shelter, medical care and safe water to communities in the 14 worst affected districts.
