Greece is not just swamped by an economic crisis – but a refugee one as well. The number of migrants arriving to the country has soared by 750 percent.

Fifty thousand people seeking asylum arrived in July alone — a time when waters are more favorable and forgiving towards the rickety fishing vessels and rubber dinghies used by desperate migrants to cross the Mediterranean.

“This humanitarian emergency is happening in Europe, and requires an urgent Greek and European response. Such a level of suffering should and can be avoided. The Greek authorities need to urgently designate a single body to coordinate response and set up an adequate humanitarian assistance mechanism.”
