UNHCR: Macedonia Offered Great Support for Refugees

Macedonia provided huge support for the vast number of refugees who have passed through the region. The way the country dealt with the crisis deserves appreciation, despite the fact that it was just a small part of the refugees who had been forces to move around the world amid violence and tyranny. Over 60 percent of the refugees are women and children, including little children travelling alone, or separated from their parents, and who need to be taken extra care of, read the release of the UNHCR Presentation based in Skopje on the occasion of World Refugee Day - June 20.

"Citizens in the country, led by their humanitarian spirit, have given the initial aid, creating a path for the Government and all humanitarian partners to reinstate coordinated aid. The aid showed the preparedness of the country to deal with an urgent situation on a large scale and to ensure that the humanitarian aid gets to those who need it most," the release read.


UNHCR hoped that the recent changes to the Law on asylum and temporary protection can be changed or annulled, and that additional measures will be undertaken in order the Law to be in proportion with the European standards.
