This is the first place they arrive after having been on the road for weeks since setting off from Greece,” explains Teresa Sancristoval, project manager for MSF's Emergency Unit in Roszke. “They can stay here for up to a few days so they need information, food, water, latrines, showers and protection from the cold as temperatures can drop to three degrees at night. With the heavy rains that we are facing now, the conditions are worsening. We have to be ready as we foresee that this situation will continue for a while."
