Poland: MSF team leaves border region after aid agencies blocked from assisting migrants and refugees

Three months after sending an emergency response team to assist migrants and refugees crossing from Belarus to Poland, international medical organisation Médecins Sans Frontières/ Doctors Without Borders (MSF) has withdrawn its team after being repeatedly blocked by Polish authorities from accessing the forested border region, where groups of people are surviving in sub-zero temperatures, in desperate need of medical and humanitarian assistance.
