Local Volunteer Project

WYSTC 2016 Local Volunteer Project

The local volunteer project has traditionally played a prominent role in the overall WYSTC journey, not only for delegates to experience volunteering and its different aspects, but importantly to contribute to the local host community.

The WYSTC 2016 local volunteer project is organised in collaboration with the Serbian branch of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Serbia has long been a stopover for refugees journeying into northern Europe, with an estimated 600,000 passing through in 2015.

The EU-Turkey agreement officially closed the migrant route through Serbia but hundreds of refugees continue to enter the country daily. Thousands of refugees remain in desperate need of shelter, food, water, medical supplies and other basic resources. One of the places where they can get this support is at the local refugee centre, which is in dire need of a makeover. Join WYSTC and the UNHCR to help make this happen.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our volunteers for their contribution to this great project!
