SNF aid to refugee aid organizations


The board of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation on Tuesday approved the donation of 750,000 euros to go toward aid organizations which are assisting refugees arriving in Greece.

The money is to be given to Doctors Without Borders and the International Rescue Committee, whose members have been offering medical treatment and advice to refugees arriving on Aegean islands from neighboring Turkey.

The organizations have also been working with local authorities to improve substandard irrigation systems on some of the islands.
