Dear colleagues and friends,
We express our gratitude to all you have done so far to respond to our appeal for solidarity support within NALAS Network. Help is still needed and the process of recovery will be long and expensive, so any support matters.
As you know, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia are facing the worst ever floods that already took victims. The situation in many municipalities is dramatic (some of which Serbia: Obrenovac, Svilajnac, Shabac, Paracin, Sremska Mitrovica, Valjevo, Smederevska Palanka, Loznica, Lazarevac; BH: Zenica, Bijeljina, Doboj, Maglaj; Croatia: Gunja, Drenovci (Rajevo Selo, Račinovci, Posavski Podgajci), Vrbanja (Strošinci), Štitar). Villages are cut-off, roads and houses are being destroyed, while citizens are displaced and are facing lack of food, water, blankets.
We can use the strength of our Network to mobilize an urgent support for the municipalities hit by this disaster and their citizens, by their fellow municipalities throughout South-East Europe.
The immediate needs are: food, water, underwear, blankets, baby diapers, hygiene supplies, etc.
Financial support is also very important, to deal with the floods, but also for the recovery. Our member LGAs have opened special bank accounts for this purpose:
