Located near the border of Croatia, OM is providing help for the refugees passing through Serbia in two local refugee camps. In Šid Family Camp we are running simple games, activities and sports for the children and teens. In Adaševci Camp we have our ‘Tea Tent’, run the camp laundry and join in with the refugees in games and sports. You will have time to facilitate regular sports activities with the guys, and also help out the team with our regular jobs – providing drinks in the OM tea tent, keeping the tent area clean, working in the camp laundry, socialising with refugees, and sharing Christ’s love with them.
You will work weekly in the Family Camp, facilitating sports, games and activities with the children and teens. We will provide assistance and resources, but we would love someone with a passion for sports who is comfortable to run these activities. You will work 4-5 days a week in Adaševci, facilitating sports activities with the young single men. They love soccer, cricket, volleyball and table tennis. There is currently no structure to our sporting activities, just informal games – the number of refugees and how long they stay for changes constantly, but they love anyone who has a passion for sport to share time with them and connect with them. You will also help our team out with our regular jobs in the tea tent and laundry. If you enjoy children's work there could be opportunity to help out in the local churches on Sundays in kids church.
Anyone with a European passport, not needing a visa for EU countries, or in possession of a Schengen visa can enter Serbia. Otherwise we are not able to provide an invitation letter for visas. Please check with your home office for more information.
