Best of #MtMF24: introduction by Oliwia Hurley

We kick-off the day with a screening of Green Border, introduced by Oliwia Hurley.

Oliwia Hurley lives in a small village a few kilometers from the Polish-Belarusian border. During the humanitarian crisis on the Polish-Belarusian border in September 2021, Oliwia decided to volunteer to provide basic humanitarian aid to people trying to survive in the Białowieża jungle. In the following year, an umbrella organization Grupa Granica and a few small NGOs were created from these civilian volunteer movements to professionalize the efforts of the volunteers. Oliwia has been part of the Egala Association since January 2023 and has been a member of the board since September 2023. She takes care of logistics and supplies for all NGOs on the Polish-Belarusian border.
