In late autumn and winter 2016, the group engaged in a human rights project by collecting testimonies of refugees tortured at the border by hungarian police and appointed "border hunters". they helped hundreds of refugees and migrants survive a bitter cold serbian winter, provided food and basic NFi (Non-Food Items) products to the population living in abandoned buildings who live in fear of being illegally deported from the camps.
