Bayern in process of setting up refugee training camp

Munich, Sep 3 (IANS) German football heavyweights Bayern Munich are in the process of setting up a training camp for refugees who are coming into Germany.

The team will also donate one million euros for future refugee projects, bbc.com reported on Thursday.

Parts of Europe have seen an influx of migrants, with many from Hungary wishing to be in Germany.

Bayern plan to provide football equipment, German lessons and food for the children.

“Bayern sees it as its social responsibility to help the refugees,” said club’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The number of refugees entering the continent has broken records this year, largely because of the conflict in Syria. Germany expects to take in 800,000 asylum seekers this year – four times last year’s total.
