Anna Alboth and Karol Wilczyński both belong to the Grupa Granica, the Border Group, a Polish network of NGO’s doing everything in their might to reach the refugees with food, water, clothes and explaining how to apply for asylum.
Grupa Granica have about eight teams operating near the border and about 40 people in total. The work is difficult. Only locals can reach the refugees in the secure zone, a two-mile deep militarised zone created by the Polish government. Nor media nor NGOs are allowed to enter the zone.
