AWA Member Triple-A helps refugees

January 21, 2016

Almost 60 million people worldwide are currently displaced - the highest number since the end of WW II. 

Last year AWA Member, Triple-A in Austria was pleased to offer help when they were contacted by Caritas and Train of Hope.  Thousands of people were arriving every day during the summer at the Austrian borders seeking refuge and help and they needed water – fast as the weather was really hot.

Triple-A donated 4 pallets with almost 5,200 .5l Aqua Alpina water bottles.  They went to the refugee camp in Traiskirchen in Lower Austria and also to Vienna’s main train station, the scene of much confusion and difficulty. 

Obviously more help will be needed in the future.   Visit www.caritas.at and www.trainofhope.at for more information.
