Belgrade, 20 November 2018 – On the occasion of the World Children's Day, UNICEF in Serbia teamed up with street artists TKV and JUNK who painted murals in the primary school "Branko Pesic" in Zemun in support of children in Serbia and around the world.

Children from this Belgrade school, including refugee and migrant children and children from socially vulnerable families, took part in painting murals on the themes of education and non-discrimination.

Another elementary school, "Djuro Strugar" in New Belgrade, thanks to UNIQA's donation, shone with a blue colour that was painted with children and the street artist Andrej Josifovski - Pijanista.
