Like other Balkan countries, Serbia experienced an influx of refugees in 2015, but has since seen a decline because of closing borders. Just over 6,000 people applied for Asylum in Serbia in 2017.
Our Work in Serbia
JRS Serbia was established in 1994 to meet the needs of refugees and other forcibly displaced people who left their homes during the wars in Balkan region. JRS Serbia has since shifted to respond to refugees and asylum seekers fleeing from other regions of the world to Europe.
In 2017, JRS Serbia opened the Pedro Arrupe Integration House for vulnerable groups of refugees (unaccompanied and separated children up to age of 15) in Belgrade. The Integration house provides shelter, food, clothes, and learning support.
