Refugee crisis in Europe

I am volunteering as a teaching assistant in a refugee school,which is located in the center of Athens.I am pretty sure that everyone has an opinion about the situation that occurs in Europe with the refugees,but the things i have witnessed,are indescribable.Most of the children are traumatised and they have no idea that they are stuck in Greece,with no luck of moving somewhere else,because many EU member countries have refused to share the burden of hosting refugees on their land.The worst part is that these children are luckier among others,most of them live with their parents and they have a stable housing.There are people that they didnt make it to survive,lost or even got drowned trying to cross from the Turkish coast to the aegean Islands.And i must say that these people are no different from us.Νevertherless,The EU counts digits and digits and digits,while people from Afghanistan,Syria,Iran,Iraq, are suffering and we do nothing about it,or leaving other countries to solve the whole problem.What is the point of the EU,if we do not unite as one ,and help those who are suffering and need help?What is the point if we remain xenophobic,narrow minded and blame harmless people for our financial and political crisis?The reason that i am talking dramatically is because the situation is dramatic,and i am talking by experience,not by uninmportant statistics and i really want to help on greater scale,not just by helping 20 or 50 people,but by solving the problem.
