    Aid groups helping refugees in Greece are packing up and leaving after the European Union withdrew its funding.

    The EU says there's no further need for emergency funding since the refugee flows from Turkey have slowed.

    It's paying the Greek authorities to take over services instead.

    But many aid groups say Greece is unprepared and refugees may lose access to vital services.

    Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from the Greek island of Chios.
