Bulgaria to Send Humanitarian Aid to Migrants Stuck at Greece's Idomeni
Bulgaria will send humanitarian assistance to the migrants and refugees stuck at Greece’s border with Macedonia in adverse weather conditions, the government in Sofia announced on Friday.
The assistance will comprise tents, beds, blankets and heating materials as specified by the Greek authorities in a letter sent to Bulgaria’s Foreign Ministry, the cabinet said in a statement.
Thousands of migrants – men, women and children - have been stuck at Idomeni, on Greece’s border with Macedonia, after the so-called Western Balkans route used by migrants to reach Western Europe was practically closed.
Heavy rains and poor living conditions at the camp in Idomeni require urgent measures to avert a humanitarian crisis, the Bulgarian government said.
