In May 2014, Serbia was affected by heavy rainfall causing severe floods in many municipalities. Having in mind that municipality of Obrenovac was most affected by May 2014 floods, EU programme for flood relief focused mainly on this municipality allocating around EUR 4.500.000 for reconstruction and construction works on private houses and help to micro and small enterprises as well as agriculture households.
The EU support in reconstruction of individual housing objects to Obrenovac is realised by Arbeiter Samriter Bund (ASB), Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe (HELP) through delivery and installation of construction material which will help the beneficiary families to restore their homes from the damages of floods.
