SERBIA AND THE FLOODING DEVASTATION
A ROAD TO RECOVERY: Assisting persons and reconstructing infrastructure and public utilities
The month of May put Serbia on a difficult road ahead as floods swept across the country, leaving a trail of devastation unseen for more than a century. With many civilians missing and many more displaced, Serbia is left with the unimaginable task of alleviating the devastating effects of the flooding disaster.
At present, the Serbian authorities are doing their utmost to counter the destructive consequences of the disaster and are sparing no effort in accommodating and caring for the thousands of people who were rendered homeless as a result of the disaster. The government’s priority will be the clean-up of the damage on road infrastructure, as well as construction of new housing units for citizens whose houses were completely destroyed in the floods. The most difficult task ahead lies in reconstructing the infrastructure and public utilities in the flood-hit areas and rehabilitating the devastated Serbian economy.
The Government of Serbia appreciates the solidarity of the international community and any form of humanitarian assistance which may be provided to counter the consequences of the devastating floods and to help put Serbia onto a path of recovery.
