U.S. Pledges Additional Humanitarian Assistance for Refugees and Migrants in Europe

Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
December 4, 2015

The United States today announced a contribution of nearly $24 million in new humanitarian assistance from the United States to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) that will help the UN organization to assist refugees and migrants throughout Europe who now face the onset of winter, especially those in Greece, the Balkans, and other parts of Europe.

UNHCR’s critical assistance includes providing food, water, and temporary shelter, as well as establishing areas to screen and process arriving refugees and migrants who may need assistance or legal protection.

We encourage other governments to contribute to UNHCR’s recent appeals to assist these vulnerable people.
