Family Connection: Hungarian Red Cross provides support to Hellenic Red Cross in migration response

The first mobile health team of the Hungarian Red Cross was deployed in Idomeni on 19 February 2016 to provide health assistance on Greece's northern border, where up to 8,000 people are currently stranded. Five members of the recently established rapid health care unit the H-HERO (The Hungarian Red Cross - Health Care in Emergency Response Operation) provide primary health care services such as medical screening, basic healthcare and first aid to the stranded men, women and children in greatest need, for a period of two weeks at a time.
