Migrants Crowd Around Van as Aid Distributed at Poland-Belarus Border

The Belarus Red Cross Society said it delivered aid to migrants at the Poland-Belarus border on November 12.

In a Facebook post, it called for the donation of blankets, hats, mittens, scarves, warm socks, diapers, and hygiene products, among other essentials.

Migrants at the border have experienced a “long stay in colder temperatures,” according to Belarus officials.
