Human rights keep endangered at the borders of the European Union.This is a humanitarian catastrophe happening just a few kilometers from EU borders. With the arrival of spring there is even more people than before at the border areas. Many of the newcomers are families with small children. Many of them were before in Greece and their asylum requests got rejected, despite they come from countries in conflict.
The work is exhausting and our expenses are much higher than usual. Now, although there is less visibility in media, the situation is tough and the needs are massive. Around 1.800 people are living outside official camps in northern Bosnia-Herzegovina.
NNK teams in Velika Kladusa and Bihac are assisting people on a daily basis with food vouchers and food packs, cooking utensils, drinking water, hygiene products, clean clothes, blankets, tents, healthcare support and reporting how human beings are violently and illegally pushed back by police officers from EU countries during their attempts to reach EU and ask for protection. We meet almost daily people without clothes, phones or money because border police officer have stolen it, so people needs our help one time after another.
No Name Kitchen is an independent NGO. We do not accept money from public agencies who have created a system based on closing borders and creating detention camps for treating migration as a crime. This allows us to speak out freely of the situation. We have been in this region since spring 2018 and we have an efficient system of distributions to ensure everybody has equal access to our support.

No Name Kitchen does everything thanks to these donations, and with more support we could improve our way to support.
SHARE AND SPREAD THE VOICE
This humanitarian crisis on the doorstep of the European Union is still largely unknown to many people and the authorities remain silent. Follow us on social media and share the information gathered by the team on the ground and the people on the move who are experiencing this situation.
Without pressure, the authorities will do nothing, and No Name Kitchen insists on the need to keep actively denouncing this situation. It is not a matter of charity, but about rights, justice and human politics.
