KFOR continues with its primary mission of providing a secure environment
and support for civil implementation tasks including UN agencies,
NGOs, local administration workers, teachers and school officials.
KFOR provides escorts and security for minority groups, humanitarian
aid convoys, school children, and the delivery of stipend payments
to municipal workers on numerous occasions. For example, KFOR provided
an escort for a convoy of Serbs leaving Velika Hoca and continue
to escort Roma children to schools in Orahovac.
KFOR continues with its visits to vulnerable persons and security
enhancements are being conducted where Serb workers are located.
It also continues its supervision of the establishment of the Kosovo
Protection Corps (TMK). Recently, TMK members worked directly with
KFOR personnel to erect tents at Kalikane school in Istok.
Preparations for winter and humanitarian support are still a priority
throughout all Multi-National Brigades (MNB). In the area of winterisation,
KFOR has performed roof repairs as well as distributed building
materials, clothing, food, and winter wheat seed to numerous locations
throughout the area. As of 9 October, a total of 4,653 shelter kits
have been distributed. The MNB are also very active in the rebuilding
and restoration of school buildings preparing them for the winter.
KFOR has provided support, including vehicles and personnel, to
assist NGOs in the transportation of humanitarian aid.
