Dear colleagues!
Child Hub is supporting UNICEF to develop capacities and provide support to frontline workers assisting refugees and migrant children in Serbia, Croatia and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. We organize trainings, regional exchanges, provide online learning opportunities and send out newsletters every second week. Below you will find a selection of resources on the refugee crisis, we hope you will find it useful and interesting!
