Which state on the Arabian Gulf refused to take refugees from Syria ?


And many Syrian refugees are Christians and not interested in emigrating to Muslim countries
Yet there is an outrage that countries like Poland only want Christian ones.

Seems like different yardsticks being used.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

Does anyone have a phone number or direct contact address, please, to anyone who is collecting goods (mats, blankets, clothing, etc.) to be taken from Zurich or surrounding cantons to places where refugees are gathered?

I have heard there are cars/trucks going this week, but have not been able to establish contact with anyone. Would very much appreciate a way to contact someone directly. Thanks.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

Thanks, Dougal's Breakfast, for the PM.
If anyone could send me a phone number of someone who is collecting goods for refugees, (or perhaps addresses of drop-off points, for example) I'd really appreciate that. Thank you very much.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

If anyone is still arranging collections for items to be taken to where they are needed most, we have several bags of baby / toddler clothes and some small toys ready to go.

Please just drop me a PM.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

I got a link to this collection event in Zurich this weekend, bit it might be better to donate cash as the Austrian organisation these people seem to be connected with call out they do not need more goods at the moment at the hungarian/serbian border, also because of the unclear political situation (which will obviously be completely different in three weeks when these individuals plan to drive off).

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

Thank you very much, mgosia.
If I understand the Zurich group's collection info properly, they are collecting goods this Saturday 19th September, and then - since the situation is changing every day as the borders of the various countries are opened or closed - they will set off to whatever area seems most in need, or fairly certainly accessible (from what they hear from the contacts they have there) at the time.

There's a good list (in German) of the types of goods they will take, such that those people who are migrating ON FOOT can be kept warm and clean: basically mats, tents, ropes, tape, bandages, sturdy shoes, winter clothing, basic toiletries, mix-with-water-only food, fold-up buggies/prams and other pull-along trolleys.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

Saturday 19th September
I've just been down to the Kaserne, to the group posted by mgosia
https://tsuerihilft.allyou.net/5661440/home
They are collecting today, until 18h.

However, when we were there at about 14h, they had had to stop accepting goods (at least for an hour or so) because they'd been overwhelmed by generosity, and did not have enough staff to unpack the piles and plies of donations.
We were told that what they need most right now is helpers who will unpack the boxes and bags, and sort the goods (they have a system, but not enough hands) - today. Otherwise they are going to have to turn away useful materials donated. Exception: bandages and easy-to-understand medication, which they are still accepting.
If anyone has a few hours on their hands, and the strength to work to help with the sorting, I guess they'd be welcomed.

Also, there was a desk for anyone to register who actually wants to go with the group when they set off to try to deliver these [sorted] goods. Requirements, naturally, are valid passport and permission to enter the relevant countries, and good mental and physical health. Some are going mainly as drivers, others intend to provide informal help e.g. in taking care of children (play-groups / schooling) or provide nursing.

We were told that they are in touch with journalists and helpers at a number of border posts and both formal and informal refugee camps, and folks from the group from Zurich intend to set off during the next few weeks, in phases, to wherever seems most likely, at the time and according to tnformation from the contacts, that they will get through.

A hungarian camerawoman was caught tripping a syrian refugee holding a child in a camp. She is close to extreme-right group Jobbik and was caught several times tripping refugees. Her employer, an online channel fired her immediately.
Quite ugly attitude.
Few of you are perhaps old enough to remember this, but I do. When so many families arrived in Switzerland in 1956 as refugees- several were hosted by our Commune and the population welcomed them with open arms. I remember the kids arriving at school, shy and scared, with no French.

At the same time as 1000s of Italian families arrived as economic migrants- our primary school had so many children who could not speak French and had to be given special support.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

The Tsurihilft group collected goods to take to refugee camps on Saturday 19th only, and are now sorting and planning their convoy.

Here is a link to Remar, a charitable organisation which runs Brockenhäuser (second-hand shops) in Switzerland, and which is still collecting. Link in German, addresses of drop-off points in the left-hand column: http://remar.ch/nothilfe-in-ungarn/

Goods needed are the following:


· tents
· ground-sheets
· synthetic rope
· strong adhesive tape
· sturdy plastic bags
· elastic with hooks (“bungies” / “octopus”)

· lightweight blankets
· lightweight sleeping bags
· mats, also small mats for children
· inflatable cushions

· backpacks / rucksacks
· sturdy bags such as sport bags
· slings / cloths to carry babies
· baby buggies
· other lightweight trolleys, able to withstand uneven terrain (no very small wheels)

· easy-to-use medication, such as painkillers, disinfectants, ointments, Voltaren, Vicks Vaporub
· bandages, gauze, plasters

· clothes washing detergent, packed in small portions / tubes
· small sewing kits (needles, thread, buttons, thimble) in lightweight etuis

· hygiene articles such as soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste
· cloth cotton handkerchiefs
· women’s menstrual pads, disposable, or even better re-usable cloth pads
· disposable nappies / diapers

· portable food requiring no cooking: such as protein bars, muesli bars, chocolate, vitamins, dried fruit, nuts
· baby food

· mobile kitchen equipment
· food for a tent-kitchen: non-perishable staples, such as rice, polenta, couscous, pasta, and tinned or dried food, soup powder (no pork)
· plastic plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery
· plastic water-bottles

· plastic raincoats / rain ponchos
· waterproof jackets
· woolly hats
· sun-hats / baseball caps
· gloves
· lightweight, warm scarves
· underwear
· socks
· clothes, sorted by size
· winter/walking shoes



No medication that would need specific medical knowledge, no summer clothing, no silly shoes, no flip-flops, nothing fragile, broken or damaged, no fluffy toys (except perhaps if match-box sized), no foods containing pork, nothing heavy or cumbersome (exception: for a tent-kitchen).

Remove heavy packaging. Some groups sending/delivering goods want sturdy cardboard boxes for the journey; others do not, and would prefer everything in plastic carrier bags.
If possible, inside the cardboard box or carrier bag, pack the items separately, well-labelled in English, German and a drawing, in clean, transparent plastic bags, which help when sorting and when distributing. Sort and bundle clothes by size.

About clothing: although Remar’s list still includes clothing, I’d suggest first checking at any collection point before delivering, as some other groups have stopped accepting clothing, because they’ve been given too much or, more to the point, impractical clothing.

A very important consideration for all donated goods is the weight. Those who are on foot will have to carry all items with them. That is one of the reasons why, in the photos we see, so much is left behind: it is simply too heavy. And we all know how it goes: the wearier one becomes, the heavier the load seems.

I heard of a group from Austria which is working at each site to collect the tents, mats, blankets, sleeping-bags and clothing left behind, and pack them in vehicles to drive to the next place where the next group of exhausted people have to settle down for the night, and redistributing them. If there is time and they find and can afford facilities, this volunteer group washes the goods, otherwise the redistribute them used.

The “Tsurihilft” group (mentioned in previous posts) is collecting contact details of people willing to drive goods, and to work on site, assembling, cleaning, cooking, distributing, nursing, comforting, collecting, redistributing, playing with children.
Remar (link in this post) is also looking for volunteers for the same sorts or work.

Here’s another group, with addresses of delivery points and bins in Zurich, which is still receiving foodstuffs (similar to the list above), bandages and other medical goods and backpacks / rucksacks or other sturdy bags e.g. sport bags, perhaps lightweight mats, but no more clothing. https://www.facebook.com/events/1032059053479876/

Remar (and possibly Tsurihilft) are also looking for people to receive, sort and pack the donated goods here in Switzerland.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

Dear All,

Thank you for all who have helped in any ways. Your donations were much needed. An EFer, Summerrain has created a fb group named "Action from Switzerland" and they delivered a huge amount of food, materials and actual work at the border. Great job.

Now refugees are still arriving in thousands (5000 - 8000 per day), they are detoured towards Croatia and they are taken by train to the Austrian border.
They have to wait until the train is full and it can take several hours.
Volunteers have got appr. 25 minutes to get to the train and handle food bags through the windows.

Now the supplies are close to zero. They ask for help. Please send food deliveries to their Budapest address 1084 Budapest, Bérkocsis street 41 (green door) (don't worry, drivers are well aware of where to unload the donations )

"TESCO ORDER INFORMATION:
You can support our sister group's work buy placing orders at Tesco.hu
We try and communicate the needs for the days ahead in the group as often as possible.
When you order, please use your name and phone number. The address is 1084. Budapest, Bérkocsis utca 41, zöld ajtó.
When you order, note the number and let us know in the fb group (Let's Help Refugees in Hungary - English wing of SEM) with the time of delivery.
Bérkocsis utca is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m."

Let me know when you need help in creating an order, notifying the Let's help Refugees group, etc. Thank you very much.

Re: Donations for Syrian refugees in Budapest

An authentic report from Migration Aid:

CROATIA/SERBIA/HUNGARY UPDATE (Friday 20:00 9/10/2015)
SERBIAN-MACEDONIAN BORDER
===========================
- PRESEVO - The situation still chaotic, police is changing conditions for refugees every hour. Waiting time 8 hours for refugees to be registered and main street is getting filled with a long queue again. More help is urgently needed, some volunteers had to leave after a week of hard work. Volunteers from various teams distributing food, water and tea and also raincoats - they are hard to buy there in large quantities, so please bring them if you can, even large trash bags are good for use as raincoats.
- Part of the volunteering team sleeps in rented apartment arranged by Youth Center with 6 beds.
- Contacts: ----------

HUNGARY
========
- DONATIONS FOR MIGRATION AID and for SOS-BAMAKO HUNGARY NEEDED!
Since asylum-seekers no longer cross Budapest, the refugee crisis is less "visible" and the press also focuses on other topics. We receive less and less donations, our storages are getting empty. At the same time, there are twice as many asylum-seekers by the border areas than they were in peek periods in the Tranzit Zones of Budapest a month ago. They are hungry and thirsty and often have to wait several hours in one train station without supplies. We need your help to be able to provide them with some food and drinks."
- Information about donations from abroad: http://www.migrationaid.net/english/
- Please see regular daily updates about what is needed and how to donate at https://www.facebook.com/migrationaidhungary and please donate!
- BUDAPEST - "We need tons of: rolls, pepper, apple, cereal bars, chocolate bars, yoghurt, triangle cheese, and plactic bags with carrier to HUNGARY, BUDAPEST 1084, BERKOCSIS STR. 41 (green door) to prepare food for Hegyeshalom."
- ZAKANY - International team including Mirgation Aid at Zákány is trying to organize food supply (by preordering and taking from the closest supermarket at Nagykanizsa and also taking donations from Budapest and elsewhere). Up to 1700 people can get on a train now at Zákány and 8 trains daily these days. Huge efforts are made to cover food costs but volunteers there (led by Babi and Mohamed who started it 3 weeks ago and did not leave since then) are quite out of money now. If anyone could contribute to food costs for refugees at Zákány please do it now. Info is updated daily here: https://www.facebook.com/Migrant-Aid...urope-167884…/ and you can easily donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/kc5jtbx4
And also: information on trains coming from Tovarnik crossing Botovo, Zákány, Győr for Hegyeshalom is now being collected in the group originally started for train information in Hungary. Please share and feel free to add information on trains (place, time, approximately number of people, special needs) at MiG RAiL: https://www.facebook.com/groups/8181...64977/?fref=ts
- Team of volunteers "SOS Budapest - Bamako" is accepting donations for Zakany, contact them at https://www.facebook.com/Budapest-Ba...efugee-161590… , where you also can see what is needed there.
Refugees at Zakany constantly need water and food for lunchpackets (bananas, apples, sliced bread, sliced cheese, muesli bars), also baby food and diapers. Please donate and help them. You can also send money via http://www.gofundme.com/sosrefugee
- HEGYESHALOM - Migration Aid's operative team is looking for volunteers at the Hegyeshalom border. Volunteers would be working in team of four in 12 hrs shifts. (6am-6pm, 6pm-6am). The volunteers are responsible to take care of the refugees, which primarily includes the distribution of donations and keeping the site clean. Volunteers are leaving daily from warehouse in Verseny utca, Budapest. First car at 4pm which also transports the daily supply and another one at 4am with the volunteers. Please see scheduling of volunteers shift for Hegyeshalom at http://bit.ly/1VueVBD
For more information contact --------- E-mail: ----------, https://www.facebook.com/siewert.org
CROATIA/SERBIA border
======================
- BAPSKA - Thousands of refugees during night and day. Yesterday's rumors about clearing the site did not fulfill, service of Czech team is continuous. Situation is calm during the day, but is getting much intense during the night. For weekend, there are enough volunteers, so play your trip for weekdays or continue down to Presevo.
- All volunteers in Serbia must fill a short form and be registered to police, our volunteers went through the registration today and it is only a small form. System has been established to deliver all forms to police station in Šid via one person.
- Raincoats needed. Also 5l and 0,5l water packages, gloves, plastic cups and spoons, lot of black tea bags, duct tape, cookies, chocolate bars, bananas.
- Volunteers needed and welcomed but please be ready for working long and late night. We also ask volunteers not to bring any alcohol.
- Clothes: warm jackets and other warm clothes, gloves, hats, SHOES! (especially 38-44 size, but all sizes are good, especially mens), new SOCKS!, bags (backpacks, ikea bags, plastic waste bags). Also mens trousers - jeans are problematic to fit, please try to collect tracksuits and other loosely worn trousers, also leggins for women. Food in larger quantities is problem to delivery across the border, so please buy it in Serbia/Croatia directly. Don't bring t-shirts and other summer clothes, there is no time tom deliver them at all and they takes space in the storages.
- Help in the area on Serbian side is coordinated by Misa, her number: --------. When arriving on place at Bapska to volunteer on both sides of the border, please report yourself at the organizing team and please obey they instruction.
- Volunteers in the Czech republic could use http://uprchlici.respublica.cz to assign their timeslots and offer/demand transport to Croatia/Serbia.
- Volunteers traveling via Hungary/Serbia and Croatia/Serbia border crossings are still experiencing problems at the Serbian customs offices, which does not want to let them in the country without paying custom duties and declarations. Shoes, clothes and large quantities of food are also problem. Always try to reduce amount of aid you carry so it does not seem suspicious, also try to pretend you are not aid workers but just tourists. Cover supplies with your personal belonging and luggage. In case of problems, there is a possibility to leave your supplies at Tovarnik at Croatian side, but the size is limited. Use Tovarnik/Sid border crossing.
- Location of makeshift camp is near Sid at Serbian side, when approaching Sid from west (from Tovarnik) turn left on light, and after 2,5 km turn slightly left when road turns right (fork type of crossroad), then through the fields cca 3,5 km and you arrive on the spot.
- Even when working on Serbian site at Bapska border crossing, try to set permanently Croatian phone operators to stay within EU roaming prices.
BEOGRAD
===========
- Volunteers helping at Miksaliste (Mostarska 5, Beograd) set up also their VolunteerSpot account and are asking anyone who is in Belgrade to sign up for various tasks needed to be done there. Visit http://www.volunteerspot.com/login/entry/4179297180119 to see what is needed there and to sign up for timeslots.
