Refugee Crisis - EU delivers practical assistance to help Greece

Refugee Crisis - EU delivers practical assistance to help Greece

9 February 2016, Brussels - The EU and its Member States have been supporting Greece in managing the continuing arrival of refugees and migrants by providing emergency assistance items and equipment.

As part of this two cargo planes carrying relief items for refugees landed last week in Athens. This new delivery of aid was made possible by the UK which provided the winter equipment, and the European Commission which helped the operation via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism and covered 85% of the transport costs.
