Scottish Government Announces 75,000 GBP Grant for Refugees in Greece



refugees lesvosThe Scottish government has approved a 75,000 GBP grant to support the refugees arriving on the Greek island of Lesbos every day. The funds will be allocated to the British Red Cross medical response team located on the island.

The 75,000 GBP was added to a previous donation of 140,000 GBP, allocated for the same cause.

Thousands of migrants and refugees arrive on the Greek islands on their way to Northern Europe, leaving behind their war-torn countries.

Since the beginning of 2015 the situation has gotten out of control as more than 3000 people have lost their lives during the journey. Many more are stranded in Greece because they are not allowed travel to the countries they desire.
