Greece - Refugees – Humanitarian assistance (March 8, 2016)


As President Hollande announced in Brussels, France has decided to respond to Greece’s request for help in dealing with the influx of refugees.

France will help set up reception and registration centers, providing prefabricated housing elements, tents, bathroom facilities, generators, pumps, storage tanks, water distribution equipment, and containers.

These humanitarian relief supplies will be shipped to Athens on March 9, with the assistance of the French Civil Security Force and the Crisis and Support Center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development.
