Berkasovo, Serbia- They sleep in damp tents in muddy fields and only get about four hours of sleep.
This might not sound like an ideal way to spend free time, but for this group of volunteers from the Czech Republic and Poland, they say it’s worth it.

In weeks when tensions have flared up between countries and various institutions have failed, it’s ordinary volunteers that are helping the thousands of refugees arriving from Serbia to cross into Croatia safely.

Since the start of the refugee crisis over 110,000 refugees have made their way into Croatia.
The young volunteers- some of which have spent three weeks volunteering at the border- shared their stories and concerns with The Middle East Eye.
