"Work of Center for Youth Integration in 2020 was under impact of COVID 19 situation.
Extremely bad position of street involved children was additionally compromised due to pandemic situation and established measures for COVID 19. In accordance with the recommendations and security measures, we have adjusted all activities of the Center for Youth Integration to the current situation and our support to beneficiaries have continued.
