The new humanitarian assistance will be received by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), according to a State Department’s press release. The assistance will help refugees and migrants, “especially those in Greece, the Balkans, and other parts of Europe,” who are bracing for the onset of winter. The UNHCR will provide “food, water, temporary shelter, as well as establishing areas to screen and process arriving refugees and migrants,” the press release said.
