The City of Belgrade Cancelled Meals in the Soup Kitchen for a Number of Residents of Container Settlements

According to information obtained from residents of some container settlements in Belgrade, the Secretariat for Social Welfare cancelled the meals in the Soup Kitchen for residents of the settlements Makis 2, Jabucki Rit and Barajevo and a number of residents of the container settlement in Mali Leskovac. According to information of the Roma Children’s Centre, the meals for the residents of the settlement Kijevo will also be cancelled as of 1 June 2013.

With reference to that, the Secretariat for Social Welfare informed the residents of container settlements to address the City Social Welfare Centre in order to “legally” exercise the right to cash assistance and Soup Kitchen.

The persons with unregulated status, specifically those who do not have any identification document, are most affected by such acting of the Secretariat, since the procedure for exercise of the right to cash assistance is complicated and lengthy (requests for enclosing much evidence, the procedure lasts 4 to 6 months on average).
