11 March 2022, Vyšné Nemecké, Slovakia: A young girl turns around to reach for a doll she has dropped as she and her family walk through the Vyšné Nemecké border crossing between Slovakia and Ukraine. The Vyšné Nemecké border crossing connects Slovakia with the city of Uzhgorod in Ukraine. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began on 24 February, hundreds of thousands of refugees have crossed the border to Slovakia in search of refuge and shelter from war and an increasingly desperate humanitarian situation. The border crossing at Vyšné Nemecké sees up to some 10,000 refugees cross each day, with faith-based and humanitarian organisations providing immediate support to people as they come into Slovakia. Support onsite includes simple shelter and beds for resting, information services, coordination of onward travel into Slovakia and finding temporary accommodation there, medical and psychosocial support, food, drinks, toys for the children, hygiene items and other necessities.
