Where does the money allocated to the settlement of the Greek immigration crisis?

The British edition of «Guardian» criticized Greece's policy on the settlement of migration crisis.

The newspaper published an article entitled "Where does the money that stand out Greece?", In which the author recalls that at the time of acute crisis of migration to Greece over 57 000 arrived migrants. In order to assist those in need in the country and thousands of volunteers arrived international humanitarian organizations, and the rescue of the people has become one of the most expensive in the past decade.

According to the assessment of the experts of the publication, total Greece was allocated 803 million euros. Most of the assistance was provided by the European Commission, which assumed responsibility for granting asylum, as well as the Internal Security Fund. Both organizations have allocated an amount of 541 million euros. The rest of the aid is private donations and funds from international humanitarian organizations. According to the author of the article, these funds should be enough for the needs of all refugees who arrived in the EU countries through the Greco-Turkish border. Based on the available data, an average of one 780 dollars was allocated per refugee.

The article highlights that despite all efforts, migrants who remained in Greece, living in poor conditions, and that the construction of the centers is progressing very slowly.
