Human Appeal to provide emergency support to Syrian refugees in Macedonia
Human Appeal have instructed it's partners in Macedonia to provide emergency relief to Syrian refugees who've escaped conflict.
The refugees, who are attempting to pass into Northern European countries from Macedonia, are sleeping rough, travelling soaked and exhausted and carrying nothing but the clothes on their backs.
Several thousands rain-soaked refugees have been arriving in Gevgelija, which borders Greece on treacherous journeys from Syria. Many were trapped in the border area between Greece and Macedonia for days when they first arrived earlier this month.
The Syrian refugees, hoping to cross Macedonia into Serbia and beyond, are now in desperate need of support and relief.
NGOs have identified that there are a large number of pregnant women and unaccompanied children travelling alone and in groups. Approximately 3,000 refugees are crossing the border everyday.
Right now, the refugees are in need of water, food, nappies, women's hygiene items and basic medicine supplies.
Over the next fifteen days, Human Appeal will be providing 6,000 food packs, 3,000 women's hygiene kids, 750 nappies, 750 blankets, 375 umbrellas and first aid. The charity's campaign will go live this week.
