In the spring of 2014, the heaviest rain recorded in 120 years caused flooding and landslides in Southeast Europe. 90% of Obrenovac, a municipality of Belgrade, was submerged and 30 000 people had to be evacuated. 30 bridges were destroyed, health and education facilities were severely damaged, such as the school which Kenneth and Susann visited. Listening to the stories of those who were affected, they realised the enormous damage flooding can cause – as well as the importance to get help during and after the event, to rebuild, but also to prevent potential future disasters.
