Since the beginning of the year more than 760,000 migrants have arrived in Europe, particularly Greece and Italy. More than 600,000 of these migrants have arrived in Greece according to the UNHCR. The organization further notes that 3,400 people have lost their lives during their effort to reach Europe this year. 200 of these individuals tragically perished while trying to cross the Aegean Sea from Turkey to Greece in wooden or inflatable boats.
