Praxis Published Protection Monitoring Report on Migration for April 2018

In April, the number of refugees/migrants met and interviewed by Praxis’ mobile team did not exceed 180 on a daily basis, including the newly arrived ones, the refugees/migrants accommodated in the Asylum Centre Krnjača and the Reception Centre Obrenovac and those who returned to Belgrade after unsuccessful attempts to cross the Croatian, Hungarian or Romanian border. In this period, Praxis provided assistance to a total of 1176 refugees/migrants, through information, referrals to the targeted assistance provided by various organisations/institutions or covering the costs of transport to the asylum and reception centres.

Praxis continued its field work and provided a total of 704 newly arrived refugees and migrants (542 adults - 470 men and 72 women, and 162 children - 126 boys and 36 girls, including 102 potential unaccompanied and separated children (UASC), 95 boys and 7 girls) with relevant information. Out of the total of 704 newly arrived refugees/migrants, 123 persons or 17.5% of them were from Afghanistan, which is almost double compared to the previous period when 64 Afghans arrived. 15 newly arrived refugees/migrants were from Syria, which accounts for 2.1% of the total number and represents a decrease compared to the previous period (in March, 33 newly arrived refugees were from Syria). 66 refugees and migrants came from Iraq (9.4%). 175 refugees/migrants (24.9%) came from Pakistan. A total of 254 refugees/migrants (36.1% of the total number) came from Iran, which is also a significant increase compared to the previous period when 125 refugees/migrants arrived from Iran. Out of 254 Iranian refugees/migrants, 230 arrived by plane. 15 refugees/migrants (2.1%) came from Algeria and 1 (0.1%) from Morocco. A total of 55 (7.8%) refugees/migrants came from other countries - from India (4), China (1), Bangladesh (4), Egypt (1), Ghana (7), Congo (1), Libya (14), Nepal (1), Ivory Cost (1), Somalia (13), Sri Lanka (5) and Tunisia (3).

The families and UASC waiting for registration or transport to one of the asylum or reception centres they had been referred to still had the option of spending the night in the aid hub Refugee Aid Miksalište, in the proximity of Belgrade Bus and Train Station. In this reporting period, there was no organised transportation of the refugees/migrants to the reception and asylum centers. Info Park continued to provide one meal a day for newly arrived refugees/migrants, and occasionally covered transport costs to the reception and asylum centres, while MSF clinic continued to provide medical support. In this reporting period, there was no organised distribution of clothing and footwear in the field in Belgrade.
