News / Twelve village houses handed over to RHP beneficiaries in Serbia
The deeds to 12 village houses were handed over to refugee families in the municipality of Vrbas in Serbia. The houses were purchased within the Regional Housing Programme in Serbia.
Thanking all RHP stakeholders for her newly purchased house, Mirjana Šišić said, “The house has new woodwork. In front of the house, there’s a bench where I’ll sit when the weather is nice. Behind the house, there’s a beautiful garden, where I’ll plant vegetables and flowers. The house is habitable, and that’s all I need.”
The event where the deeds were handed over was attended by municipal representatives alongside Nemanja Starović, State Secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Derek George, Deputy Head of Cooperation at the Embassy of Switzerland in Serbia; Vladimir Cucić, the Serbian Commissioner for Refugees and Migration, and Violeta Samardžić, representing UNHCR. They also took the opportunity to visit an RHP building in Vrbas where 14 apartments re currently under construction.
The European Union is the largest donor of the Regional Housing Programme, with other key donors being Germany, Italy, Norway, Switzerland and the United States of America.
