Over the past few weeks, Serbia has been hit with disaster because of Hurricane Tamara, which released record-breaking amounts of rain over the country which has not been seen for 120 years since records began. This storm has caused a natural disaster all over the country, with the River Sava over-flowing with water from the storm and also threatening the main power plant in Obrenovac near Belgrade with tragic consequences for the Serbian people. At least 40 people have lost their lives and thousands of people in Serbia had to leave their flooded homes. Volunteers from all over the country and Serbia’s neighbouring regions are helping to evacuate citizens in need of help.

Chinese people affected in Belgrade, Serbia

This is an international effort on behalf of a lot of different countries including USA, Norway, Russia and Croatia. They want to help many different people who are affected in Serbia. 500 Chinese families living in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, have collected clothes, boots and hygiene products worth more then 100.000 euros. These families have been living for over 10 years in Serbia and they remember how Serbian people helped the Chinese after the earthquake several years ago.

However small a donation may be – together with the help from all over the world, it will be of significant help for people in need.
