The Arman community in Serbia has about 300 confessing members, the actual number being around 3000. Up to 50 members are regularly active in the organisation Lunjina and take part in the numerous activities of the association. In contrast to Albania and North Macedonia, the Arman community in Serbia is still not considered a national minority and enjoys no financial support from public funds. Lunjina's activities are therefore financed by private funds and donations.
