Fires in Roma settlements are becoming more frequent, the material damages are enormous, and there are often human casualties!

In the last few years, fires in Roma settlements across Serbia have become more frequent, causing serious concern for the safety of residents and serious consequences for the environment. While the Roma community faces a series of social, economic and environmental challenges, the fires represent an additional burden that must be faced.

The most important consequence of the fire is endangering the safety of the residents. Frequent fires often lead to loss of life, injuries and destruction of homes. Residents of Roma settlements, often faced with low socio-economic status and lack of access to basic resources, are particularly vulnerable in these situations.

In the past period, 22 Roma settlements in the south of Serbia received fire extinguishers, and local volunteer firefighters were trained to react in risky situations. Fires in Roma settlements also have serious environmental consequences. The burning of plastic, electrical equipment and other waste leads to the release of harmful gases and poisonous substances into the atmosphere, polluting the air and soil. These consequences can have long-term effects on the environment and the health of the local community.






UN: Nearly 282 million people worldwide face acute hunger in 2023

Nearly 282 million people in 59 countries faced acute hunger in 2023, and the Gaza Strip was the territory where most people suffered from hunger last year, according to a United Nations report.

The report said that in 2023 the number of people facing acute hunger increased by 24 million compared to 2022 due to a sharp deterioration in food security, especially in the Gaza Strip and Sudan. It also highlights that the UN has increased the number of countries in which it monitors food supplies compared to 2022. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in the introduction to the report that the conflicts that have erupted in the last 12 months have led to a catastrophic global situation.

More than 80 percent of the people facing hunger, 577,000 of them, are in the Gaza Strip and thousands of people are facing catastrophic famine in South Sudan, Burkina Faso, Somalia and Mali. According to UN estimates, about 1.1 million people in the Gaza Strip and 79,000 in South Sudan will face extreme hunger by July.
