The European Committee of the Regions (COR) has launched an Info-Support Hub to support regions and cities welcoming displaced people.
The CoR’s Info-Support Hub for Regions and Cities offers information on rights and funds, support and advocacy. It includes an initiative to match the needs and offers of support by local and regional authorities.
The President of the CoR, Apostolos Tzitzikostas, governor of the Greek region of Central Macedonia, called on all EU regional and local leaders to join this solidarity project and support the EU’s bordering regions that “cannot help alone all the millions of families displaced from war.”
“It is our duty to share the responsibility and show European solidarity in action,” he said.
