The Hungarian government will work with three local charitable organizations – the Hungarian Charity Service of the Knights of Malta, Hungarian Interchurch Aid and the Hungarian Red Cross – so that these groups can provide humanitarian assistance to refugees near the Hungarian border with Serbia, Cabinet Chief János Lázár announced at a press conference today.

These organizations will be able to provide food, water and other essentials at the Röszke reception and holding center, according to reports.

Lázár refuted charges that the Hungarian government does not treat asylum seekers humanely, and stressed that offering them assistance is the government’s legal and moral obligation.
