  • Description:
    Mercy Corp, through its resettlement program (EU-MRSI & RESTART), has begun resettling Roma, Ashali, and Egyptian (RAE) families living in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps in North Mitrovica to the historic Roma neighborhood (Roma Mahola) that had been destroyed during the war with Serbia in 1999. The IDP camps were heavily contaminated with lead, and many of the children living in them were lead-poisoned. Mercy Corp is carrying out this task with the financial support of the European Commission Liaison Office to Kosovo (ECLO) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID). This is a report of the status of identification and clinical care of the children who are less than 6 years old and have been relocated. The report contains recommendations for next steps to be taken in addressing the needs of these children.
