Distribution of 900 baby packages has begun in 17 Montenegrin municipalities for the most vulnerable population, the Roma-Egyptian (RE) population and social cases.
The packages contain baby food, diapers, skin cream, wet wipes, grits and porridge, and will be distributed in Berane, Nikšić, Bijelo Polje, Bar, Kotor, Cetinje, Ulcinj, Tivat, Budva, Tuzi, Petnjica, Pljevlja, Podgorica, Herceg-Novi, Rožaje, Plava and Gusinje.
In addition to the baby packages which are being distributed, last Friday, June 19 Help has delivered gloves, masks and other disinfectants to the Directorate for the Execution of Criminal Sanctions (UIKS) in Spuž, as well as special material for making special resistant face masks -felt. The prisoners will be making masks from that material in the UIKS workshops.
Help is implementing this aid distribution because of the coronavirus pandemic as part of a regional project funded by the German government: “Support to socio-economic stability in the Western Balkans region 2019-2020.”
Assistance is being distributed with the help of Montenegrin Red Cross activists.
The packages have already been distributed in Berane and Bijelo Polje.
The aid of Help and the German Government in the form of disinfectants, gloves and masks as well as materials for making special masks was handed over to UIKS last Friday.
