Floods in Serbia disrupt school year: How UNICEF is helping
OBRENOVAC, Serbia, 14 July 2014 - Most pupils from the Serbian municipality of Obrenovac did not finish this school year in their own schools. The floodwaters damaged many schools and homes making it impossible from them to attend classes and take their exams.
Fifteen-year old Dragan is one of those who cannot return to his home as the floods have heavily damaged his home. Dragan studied for the most important school exam in Serbia, which pupils take at the end of primary school and which determines which high school they will attend, without electricity and often in impossible conditions.
