Hundreds of migrants can be seen every day in the northeastern city of Tuzla, mostly occupying the area near the main bus and train station.

The migrants started flocking the city this spring, using it as a stop on their Bosnian route towards the final destinations, which they claim to be in the western Europe countries.

Local authorities do not provide them with temporary accommodation or other necessities, so they depend solely on the Red Cross volunteers, activists and citizens, who bring them warm meals every day.

An informal group of citizens 'Tuzla volunteers' is also visiting the spots occupied by migrants, bringing them clothes, blankets and sleeping bags, as they sleep in the open.

The migrants come to Bosnia from Serbia and they are mostly the nationals of Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Morocco, Bangladesh, India and other Asian and African countries.
