- PRESEVO - MONEY needed! Even more refugees than in the previous days have arrived, queues up to 5 hours, but situation stable and under control at the moment. Police not very cooperating and confused. The nights are very cold, temeperature drops to zero. Boots, socks, raincoats, jackets, blankets needed.

- BEOGRAD - Refugees taken to a camp with hot meals and shower to rest, after that transported to Berkasovo by bus. At "Miksaliste" Volunteers are still needed, despite it's not so sexy as direct field volunteering. Join us distributing clothing, shoes, food and hygienic items and creating a welcoming atmosphere for the stop-over in Belgrade. We're still accepting and also redistributing donations to border points, which requires help in sorting and packing.

- If you want to help in the no-man's land, you can enter from the Slovenian side, but dont forget not to argue with police and military.
- Waiting time is reduced thanks to better organisation on the Austrian side (more lines to enter the country were added and hence less crowd control problems). For donations, please check this FB site: https://www.facebook.com/RefugeesSpielfeld/
