GRODNO, 30 November (BelTA) – The International Red Cross may allocate about €6 million worth of aid to the refugees stuck at the Belarusian border, BelTA learned from Secretary General of the Belarusian Society of the Red Cross Dmitry Shevtsov.
The official said: “Aid from the International Red Cross to the refugees may be close to €6 million. It is too early to talk about the final figure. Extraordinary fund raising has been declared. Germany's Red Cross has also confirmed the intention to grant $143,000 worth of humanitarian aid to the refugees.”
For now only the Belarusian side provides all the aid to the refugees. Dmitry Shevtsov stressed that Belarus' Red Cross has enough assets for a comfortable life of the refugees in the transportation and logistics hub. As much as 112 tonnes of humanitarian aid has been handed out since their stay in the warehouse began, including food, warm clothes, footwear, and bed linen.
