Sumka Bučan about Lipa camp: „What we see around is 1000 people freezing in a location that has no conditions to shelter people“
Information about the Lipa camp in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where more than 1300 migrants live without adequate tents, food, and clothing in the winter, has reached the world media, which wrote about the inhumane treatment of people coming from the Middle East and North Africa.
The director of CARE international Balkans, Sumka Bučan, told for Deutsche Welle today that there is no even a signal that such a situation could be resolved soon.
“What we see is a lot of finger-pointing and nobody is taking responsibility or being accountable for this situation, neither to migrants or to the local population.” What we see around is 1000 people freezing in a location that has no conditions to shelter people,” Bucan said.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has withdrawn from the camp, and currently only the Red Cross operates in the camp, allowing migrants only one meal a day. Bosnian politicians still cannot agree on where the migrants will be relocated.
