The Hungarian Red Cross has revealed that it has provided assistance to 280,000 people coming from Ukraine and staying in the country over the past six months. Members and volunteers of its rapid response unit, H-HERO, have provided care to 2,074 people in the border region since the outbreak of war in February. Its Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county chapter has so far supplied more than 300 tons of aid worth HUF 270 million (EUR 657,000) to its Ukrainian partner organization in Transcarpathia, it said. The organization operates facilities to provide long-term shelter to 30-130 people in eight localities, namely Budapest, Dunaújváros, Hódmezővásárhely, Likócs, Makó, Miskolc, Salgótarján and Szeged.
