Good Luck.
Germany and Austria welcomed thousands of refugees yesterday after their long walk through Hungary. refugees arrived at train stations in Germany and at Austrian border to crowds of local people who applauded new arrivals and gave them water, food and clothes. German and Austrian children carried baskets of sweets to give to children from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. For many of refugees, it was end of a long journey that started in Syria and ended with long walk through Hungary. German rail company Deutsche Bahn announced on Saturday that it would be adding extra carriages to its trains and was, "doing everything it can" to help refugees.

United Nations (UN) has praised Austria and Germany for their efforts to welcome and help refugees. It said: "This is political leadership based on humanitarian values." Germany's leader Angela Merkel said her country would welcome all refugees from Syria. Germany is expecting around 800,000 Syrians to arrive this year amid continuing uncertainty about future of Syria. Ms Merkel told reporters that, "as strong, economically healthy country, we have strength to do what is necessary". One refugee, Syrian shopkeeper said: "I'm very glad to be in Germany. I hope that I find much better life here. I want to work." He expressed concern for his family and young children still in Syria.
