Germany sent to Athens a total of 55 trucks with winter provisions to help refugees face the winter, German Ambassador to Greece Ernst Reichel has said.
The donation included beds, bed-covers, sheets and blankets for the needs of 10,000 people and is worth 1.56 million euros.
Reichel said the donation follows up on a commitment by German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, following a visit he made to Athens.
At a joint press conference, Alternate Citizen Protection Minister responsible for migration, George Koumoutsakos said “the collaboration of Greece and Germany brings concrete results, but is not exhausted by today’s action.”
PS beds and bed sheets in tents? No iron? These people need proper housing, best is relocation to other EU countries, like Germany, for example.
