Unprepared for the harsh winter
The Lipa Emergency Tent Camp, located in the northwest of Bosnia and Herzegovina, housed 1,400 migrants from several countries. It was closed and destroyed by a fire on the 23rd of December.
With nowhere to go, the refugees are exposed to the harsh winter. Currently stranded at the former Lipa camp, with no heating and inadequate clothing, these refugees are at risk of frostbite, hypothermia and other severe health problems, according to a UN report.
Our mission is to help bring hope and tangible help to the poor and suffering.
GAiN UK, together with RefugEase, have sent an emergency lorry filled with winter clothing and blankets on the 11th of February but we would like to continue helping these migrants by collecting and sending more in the future.
