Red Cross: Irregular migrants do not have access to medical care in Lithuania

The Red Cross regularly monitors the camps and informs the responsible authorities of its observations.

Irregular migrants still lack access to medical care, the head of the Lithuanian Red Cross said.

“There are things to be fixed. For example, medical assistance: not only emergency assistance, but also assistance for people with chronic conditions and pregnant women.”

“The camps are visited by mobile teams of doctors, but some of them need constant medical care,” she added.

She also noted that some people need psychological assistance.

“People went through a lot in the countries they fled. Here, things are not necessarily what they expected either,” she said. “These people are not in the best psychological state.”
