Doctors Without Borders update from Serbia
This update from Serbia about the refugee and migrant crisis there is gut-wrenching and needs to be read. DWB has been treating people including children for injuries, including many sustained by border control authorities. Now many in Serbia are also suffering frostbite or dying from the cold. Whatever your stance on the immigration issues and politics of this, I think it’s essential to remember that these are all humans.
Doctors without Borders stated it well, “Whatever you think about their right to travel to and within Europe, they deserve to be treated as human beings, with dignity. And right now, they’re not.”
Fellow Christians, please remember to keep praying for these people and this crisis as a whole.
