Belarus and neighbouring countries: population movement

Since May 2021, a growing number of people crossed, or attempted to cross, from Belarus into neighbouring Lithuania and Poland. This Emergency Appeal enables the IFRC to support the National Red Cross Societies of Belarus, Poland and Lithuania (and potentially other countries as the situation develops) to provide broad and integrated humanitarian assistance to thousands of people on the move. Support includes: food and water, hygiene kits, warm clothes and footwear, raincoats, blankets, sleeping bags, nutrition for children, COVID-related information, personal protective equipment, psychosocial support and restoring family links services as well as first aid and medical referral support.
