JRS Serbia is implementing support and integration of the Ukrainian refugees in Serbia. In addition, we are strengthening atmosphere of welcoming in the local communities and in the school communities of Serbia.
JRS is distributing bank cash cards that can be used for payment of food, non-food items and medicaments in most shops in Serbia with common card payment system, which is considerably more convenient for beneficiaries, compared to shop vouchers issued by shopping chains that are not available in all places/regions.
Cost effectiveness of the activity is significantly higher, compared to purchase and distribution of food and non-food items that would require more complicated and costly logistics.
Improved targeting of real needs of the refugees from Ukraine. The decision on the most appropriate/needed item at the moment of purchase is beneficiary’s choice. This fosters dignity and allows beneficiaries to better fulfil their needs.
