Pristina, November 27, 2020
The Ministry of Communities and Returns and the Office of the European Union in Kosovo made sure that the families for whom the houses from the fifth phase of the program "Return and Reintegration in Kosovo" (EU RRK-5) were built will welcome the coming winter. Namely, in the municipalities of Novo Brdo, Štrpce, Peć, Orahovac, Istok, Prizren, Obilić, Fushë Kosovë, Gračanica and Đakovica, 5 cubic meters of firewood were distributed to a total of 95 families from non-majority communities.
The families who received this help say that the ministry provided them with literally everything for a normal life, from building new homes, complete equipment, help with economic empowerment, and now they are enabled to welcome cold days in warm homes. Family members are immensely grateful to everyone who helps them, and especially to Minister Dalibor Jevtić, who is fulfilling his promises.
The distribution of wood was carried out with the help of ministry officials by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), which was entrusted with the implementation of the mentioned EU RRK-5 program.
The Ministry of Communities and Returns will finance the continuation of this action from its own sources in the coming period, which will help returnees, displaced persons, members of the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities, as well as other vulnerable categories of people in isolated areas in Kosovo.
