Merle, Kim & Rina

Merle works for Mission Lifeline, a small aid organisation. Previously, their focus was on the Mediterranean. But when they saw refugees pouring in from Ukraine, they felt they had something to add: they were able to organize onward transport to Western Europe quicker than most, so refugees wouldn't be stuck in Slovakia and aid systems there wouldn't be overwhelmed.

Merle and Mission Lifeline set up their tent and services just a few meters away from the Slovak-Ukrainian border crossing.


Literally a few meters down the road is the tiny village of Vyšné Nemecké. A church, a few run-down buildings, some chickens. In one of the buildings I met logistics specialists Kim and Rina. Normally, they work for a big pharmaceutical company. But they took a week off to streamline systems bringing private aid into Ukraine.
