Greece(Mission Network News)— New rules put in place between Turkey and the European Union (EU) means the number of refugees fleeing the war in Syria crossing the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece has shrunk over the past weeks.
“There has been a reduction in the flow of refugees, but it has not resolved it,” said AMG President and CEO Anastasios Ioannidis. “Out of the deal with the EU, Turks will be able to travel to Europe without a visa.”
For the humanitarian workers in the refugee camps of Greece, the slow-down of new emigrants means they can focus on those already there.
Dear Reader, because of your generous support, we have received enough funds to send many audio Bibles to Iraqi and Syrian refugees displaced by ISIS in the Middle East. Many have been distributed and received with gladness. Now, as the cold winds of winter blow in, we are seeking to also meet the physical needs of the people by providing fuel-operated heaters for the refugees and their children to stay warm. Would you join us by making a donation today to this important work (James 2:16)?Please click here to send a heater to a refugee family >>
