70 YEARS OF UNICEF IN THE FORMER YUGOSLAVIA AND THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
Nis City Mayor Darko Bulatovic and and UNICEF Representative in Serbia, Michel Saint-Lot, officially opened a photo exhibition – UNICEF: 70 Years in Serbia at the central city square in Nis. The photo exhibition depicts seven decades of UNICEF’s dedicated work in Serbia. It spans from 1947, when the first humanitarian aid shipments were sent to children and families in the former Yugoslavia, up to the present day. “UNICEF has always been a part of the history of this country. Since 1947, we have been helping in various ways – from humanitarian aid to systemic support to the Government in its reform processes. We have always worked together, in partnership, towards the same goal – to reach every child who needs support. Celebrating the 70th anniversary of UNICEF’s work in Serbia is an opportunity to remind ourselves of the obligations we have towards children and to recommit to fulfilling our promises – to work to ensure that every child reaches his or her full potential,” said Michel Saint-Lot, UNICEF Representative in Serbia.
