Hungary: Budapest, 4 September 2015

 

In response to hundreds of refugees and other migrants taking to the road with the aim of walking to Austria, Hungarian Red Cross immediately activited its response teams. The Red Cross has been providing food, water, blankets, clothes and first aid to those in need along the main highway from Budapest to Austria.

 

Over 140,000 people have applied for asylum in Hungary already in 2015. In recent weeks, the number of people arriving in the country has increased dramatically, resulting in a major bottle neck and leaving hundreds sleeping rough at train stations each night.
