[Hungary] Kurdish refugees stuck in Hungary plead for help

24 May 2017

Within Hungary's Tompa Refugee camp, 250 Kurdish migrants live in limbo. Among these refugees, are young children, according to a recently published article by Rudaw. The camp's residence is urging for global assistance, in protest of the harsh conditions existent within the camp. Detention centers such as the Tompa camp have emerged through the country's hostile approach toward the alleviation of the migrant crises. Through the implementation of harsh legislation entrenched into Hungarian law, all refugees regardless of age are confined to the parameters of these camps. According to Rudaw, the Tompa camp is divided into four areas, containing 16 homes per section, while hosting 500 asylum-seekers. Furthermore, Kurdish migrants represent the largest bracket among the camp's population.
