How you can help the World Food Programme with a new airport transfer in Greece
The World Food Program has announced a new $20 million airport transfer for Greece, the first of its kind in Europe, as it struggles with a growing number of humanitarian crises.
The move comes amid a sharp increase in the number of refugees entering Greece from Turkey and Europe’s migration crisis.
The World Resources Institute said on Tuesday that the total number of arrivals into Greece had increased by more than 300,000 people in the first six months of 2017.
As of February, the World Resources Group said, Greece was hosting more than 7.7 million refugees and internally displaced people.
As of March 31, Greece has registered more than 4.4 million refugees.
The International Organization for Migration said on Monday that the number seeking refuge in Greece is now at more than 3.8 million.
