International Volunteers Flock to Aid Refugees in Greece

NPR reporter Joanna Kakissis speaks with several international volunteers who traveled to Greece to aid refugees migrating there.

About a half-million migrants have made the journey across the sea from Turkey to Greece so far this year, with most — about 5,000 each day — landing on the island of Lesbos. Ms. Kakissis meets three Swedish friends who came to the island to help after seeing the widely distributed photo of a 3-year-old drowned Syrian child.
