Over the next several weeks, Poland will send over 600 modular homes to refugees in Syria and Greece, Deputy Foreign Minister Paweł Jabłoński and Deputy Interior Minister Bartosz Grodecki announced on Tuesday.
The first 156 homes will be sent to Greece within the coming three days, a further 500 to northern Syria over the next few weeks.
The homes will be erected in refugee camps in the two aforementioned countries amid the serious refugee crisis in Syria and the recent burning down of a large refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos.
“Prime Minister Morawiecki agreed to hand over these components for construction and support for a safe haven for people who, due to armed conflicts and dangers in their countries of origin, especially in Syria, had to flee their places of residence and need shelter", deputy FM Jabłoński said.
Mr Grodecki said that the aid for Syria and Greece was an act of solidarity “which fits very well with the aid policy implemented by the Polish government".
