            New activity phase: AMDA to assist mobile clinic activities

            As of 13 July, an AMDA coordinator has been working at the help center for Ukrainian evacuees in Beregsurany, a Hungarian village bordering with war-torn Ukraine.

Accordingly, the number of those who stay at the center has become less, although 11 people were still taking shelter there that day.
