Many tents were destroyed in a fire that broke out in the camp in December 2020. The migrants that live outside, unprotected in the region under severe winter conditions and heavy snow, face the threat of freezing.

Immigrants in the destroyed Lipa camp are struggling to survive under these extreme conditions. IHH will be continuing it food distribution project in the region.
