Hulp bij de grens
Mensen opvangen, van eten voorzien en vervoeren
Er zijn 7 Musketiers in Hongarije die mooi werk verrichten aan de grens, mensen opvangen, van eten voorzien en wegbrengen naar allerlei plaatsen. Over een week vertrekt er weer een groep.
Monday a week ago an initiative was formed to go to the Hungarian - Ukrainian border, to help refugees. With the help of 4M we were able to form a group of 7 men, with 3 vans. Last wednesday we left for Tiszabecs, where Baptist Aid runs a help centre which assists refugees in travelling further into Europe to their, hopefully temporary, new homes. After a warm welcome to our new ‘home’ for the week, we were put to work immediately. We have been shuttling refugees, mostly to locations in and around Budapest. From there they will take the bus, train or airplane. We have also handed out blankets, clothes and hot tea at the border crossing, because refugees without the proper paperwork are left standing out in the cold (-2C) for hours. Even though most Ukranians have been through a nightmare, and on the run for days, they are friendly and thankful. Their stories are beyond what we can imagine. We will be leaving tonight, but thankfully the next Dutch delegation of volunteers is preparing to take our place and serve in Tiszabecs.
