It took almost until the end of our tour until we properly arrived and integrated into everyday life were in the camps – for it properly. We support both a small supply camp at the railway station in Dobova, as also the transfer camp on the outskirts of the small town. We have helped both camps to build. At the station, we provide four our tents available, where supplies for the refugees are ready. If trains, we received the refugees and distributed food, warm clothes and other donated items. Then, the refugees are brought to the registry in the transfer camp.
Yesterday, the situation was particularly sensitive, as Austria had temporarily closed its borders. Refugees, who were on a train direction border, had to wait for hours in the station before they were again driven back transfer camp. In addition to more refugees from Croatia arrived. A train had to remain even in all night the station before off early at 5 the border crossings to Austria was opened again.
Transfer camp, we are in the first-aid tent of Caritas and take care of people when they need medical help. While it's sometimes fractures especially blisters on the feet, colds, abrasions. In addition we have supported the Red Cross, which operates the large waiting tents and distributed there warm blankets, as well as receiving the refugees there.
Order to put a little smile on the faces of the children, we distributed toys that we had worried the donations at the entrance of the camp.
A few people from us on a refugees welcome – demonstration in Zagreb took part at the end of our tour. In addition to networking with local activist * inside was also very interesting to run a demonstration with several hundred participants over a large part of the track only on sidewalks to see. The street wanted to not make free–the police, because the gathering of about 400 people would be "not big enough for this".
The majority of the current refugee support tour are currently on their way back to Germany or are already back. A doctor and a nurse stay longer on the ground. We wish them all the best! You will get to read yet a final report and summary of donations from us and until then – thank you for your interest and for your great support. Refugees welcome!
