Poland’s small Muslim community help the “desperate” at the EU border
Poland has a relatively small Muslim community and is helping the migrants and refugees by providing them with food. Poland’s border village of Bohoniki has also held several funerals for migrants trying to cross the border from Belarus. The Lipka Tatars community of Poland has had a strong loyalty towards the refugees as they welcome the migrants with sympathy.
The Tatars community of Poland are Muslims and have been prominent in helping to collect the food parcels for the refugees. Whereas, a Polish woman is quoted by a publication, “From our Muslim community, there is a lot of help. We also cook soups for the soldiers. We serve 300 portions every day.” Subsequently, another charity in Poland has appreciated the work done by the Polish Muslims as she said, They have always come to help.” At the same time, one of the prominent members of the Tatars community is quoted by a publication saying, “I am just helping out because I’m a human being and maybe at some point in my life, I will need help from other people when I am without food or shelter.”
