A Child Friendly Space provides relief for refugee children in Serbia

On October 4th, World Vision, together with UNICEF, opened a Child Friendly Space (CFS) for refugees crossing at the Bapska border between Serbia and Croatia. In CFS, children are able to spend time playing and drawing, while mothers were provided with space to breast-feed and rest.

"It is very important to have space for women and children where they can have protection and privacy as well as some normalcy," said Weihui Wang, World Vision's Child Protection and Participation Lead in Serbia. 

World Vision has been responding to the refugee crisis in the Western Balkans since early September by providing basic hygiene and food packages.
