The Red Cross is helping with rescue operations as flooding in the Balkans continues to affect tens of thousands of people.  

The worst floods in more than a century have submerged large parts of both Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina following unprecedented levels of rainfall.

Almost one third of Bosnia and Herzegovina is affected and a state of emergency has been declared in 14 municipalities.

Red Cross teams, as well as thousands of staff and volunteers, are helping with evacuations and distributing blankets, drinking water, food and hygiene kits to people affected.
