US gives $24 million in refugee aid for Europe
The United States is giving $24 million in new money to help refugees as the European winter approaches.
The aid will go to the UN refugee agency for food, water and shelter. It will also help authorities screen and process refugees as they arrive in Europe.
US Secretary of State John Kerry made the announcement as he visited Athens on Friday.
Greece has been overwhelmed by hundreds of thousands of Syrians and other refugees who have reached the country’s shores this year.
The US has provided $4.5 billion in humanitarian assistance since the start of Syrias civil war in 2011
