Hungary to Donate Aid to Refugees in Bulgaria
Hungary will donate aid to Bulgaria on Wednesday, as the Balkan country is struggling to deal with the ongoing refugee influx.
The aid will be donated courtesy of EU’s Civil Protection Mechanism.
H.E. Anrdas Klein, Hungary’s Ambassador to Bulgaria, and Bulgarian Deputy Interior Minister Vasil Marinov will attend an official ceremony, according to the Interior Ministry’s press office.
Bulgaria received a donation worth EUR 30 000 from Slovakia earlier this week.
Bulgaria has seen a considerable refugee influx over the past months, with authorities saying the number of asylum seekers in the country may reach 11 000 by the end of the year.
The Balkan country is the gateway to the European Union for refugees fleeing Syria via Turkey, many crossing the border illegally to seek asylum.
