>> More than 7000 migrants are trapped in Serbia, bracing for the cold winter in overcrowded camps in terrible conditions. Most hail from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria, they're forced to set up tents on the street or abandoned warehouses. Living for months without basic amenities, mostly limited to a single tap for water, waiting to have their number called up for legal passage to Hungary.
> We came to Serbia and registered our names at the camp, expecting to be able to leave legally. When we go the boarder, we found that there was no electricity, no water. It is very cold, the children are freezing, there is no food, we have to buy things from the supermarket but we are running out of money.
We've been here for seven months, there is no justice.>> The so called Balkan's route has been officially closed, activists and NGOs say many shelters in the Balkans are full. But the stream of people arriving to cross the border is relentless.>> According to our knowledge there is around up to 100 arrivals per day.
We are meeting and supporting 30 to 50 new people per day in Belgrade and in Presevo and almost half of this number are child.>> Only around 20 migrants are allowed to enter Hungary each day, the rest stay behind. At this overcrowded Belgrade center, Save the Children provides activities for boys and girls.
Serbia has pledged to make 6000 beds available, but has appealed for more help from the European Union to ease the crisis.
