János Gerevich added: “In the Bethlen Gábor Hungarian High School in Berehove, 60 people are permanently housed in the dormitory. Some of them are changing, others are settling in for the longer term. Mothers, children, grandmothers, who come to the border with their husbands, but here they have to separate. The dormitory is also supported by the Hungarian Interchurch Aid with refrigerators and washing machines, while it also provides food for the residents. Tens of thousands of refugees have already arrived in the Transcarpathian region, with more than 1,200 refugees officially registered in the Berehove district alone.

The Hungarian Interchurch Aid is continuously helping with information points on both sides of the border, in the settlements of Asztej in Transcarpathia and Barabás in Hungary. It has also set up shelters in its institutions in Debrecen, Miskolc and Budapest, and delivered several truckloads of food and hygiene products to families fleeing the war in the border region. It has also opened a humanitarian office in Lviv, where it is actively assisting in the care of refugees while preparing a complex relief programme as a member of the ACT Alliance, an international coalition of relief organisations.
