16.11.2020

A total of 1,100 food and hygiene packages along with 800 boxes of school supplies will be distributed to the most vulnerable citizens in Montenegro. Help’s new project, which is funded by the German Embassy in Podgorica, is intended to help the most vulnerable categories of citizens who are further additionally affected by the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In eight municipalities in northern Montenegro: Berane, Bijelo Polje, Andrijevica, Petnjica, Plav, Rožaje, Gusinje, Pljevlja as well as in Nikšić, food and hygiene are going to be distributed, while school supplies will be distributed to vulnerable categories in the central and southern part of Montenegro.

Part of the packages with the school supplies will be distributed in Berane, Bijelo Polje and Nikšić.

The Montenegrin Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare has given support to these measures, for which we believe will make life easier for the most vulnerable people under the conditions of this pandemic.

Help will distribute this help in coordination with the Montenegrin Red Cross and in compliance with the measures for fighting against the COVID-19 pandemic. The distribution of help packages will begin in early December.

The total value of this project which is funded by the Government of Germany through the Embassy in Podgorica is 50 thousand Euros.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in March, Help has  in few circle distributed food and hygiene assistance to the most vulnerable citizens throughout Montenegro. Also, in order to facilitate the process of online learning, we donated smart mobile phones for children, as well as tablets for easier communication with the outside world in several public institutions in the Montenegro.
