EU sounds the alarm about the living conditions of migrants in Greece
Greece, the other EU-member states and international aid agencies need everything from the cabinet to the situation of migrants on the Greek islands to improve.
More help is immediately needed. That call did EU commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos on Wednesday during a visit to the Greek island of Lesvos, where few of the thousands of migrants reside in harsh winter conditions.
“Solutions must be found today, and not tomorrow or next week,’ said the Greek, who spoke of a collective European responsibility and moral duty.
“The European humanitarian tradition should be maintained.” He called on the EU countries as promised, more asylum seekers from Greece.
The netherlands has over the past time, including generators, vans, beds, sleeping bags, pillows and sanitation sent.
In the whole of Greece sitting over 60,000 refugees and migrants. The UN agencies UNICEF and UNHCR were already sounding the alarm.
