European Union governments let refugees down

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Serbia has been waiting for seven weeks for 170 tents

Today, 14:37

For weeks Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia have been waiting for blankets, bunk beds and toilet blocks for receiving refugees, but only a fraction of the required stuff has been actually offered and delivered. Only eleven EU countries have so far made any concrete contribution. This says a survey by the European Commission.

The list shows for example that Serbia on September 21 has shown they have a shortage of 170 tents, three thousand bunk beds, 50,000 disposable raincoats and 27 mobile showers. None of these articles has been offered. Not any EU member state has offered to supply these goods.
