Since 2003 Atina is running 3 programmes for direct support to vots – Shelter, Reintegration Centre and Field Support Team. Since then Atina supported over hundreds of victims in Serbia. NGO Atina’s action has been expanding into: research and analysis, policy development, advocacy and creation of sustainable multi-sectoral mechanisms to support vots in Serbia.
