2:03 pm
they don't have a clear plan. that's what i recognize. >> reporter: the best thing that happened to them was the riervearrival of volunteers from slovenia and croatia. offering a liberal of dignity. they are doing this but the governments are not and they are less than impressed. >> it is no surprise they are here. if i would be the slovenian president and running a household i would know they are coming. if you have some kind of common sense you know the people would appear. >> and right at the fence they pleaded with the riot police for an arabic speaker to come across. an occasionally person would get through, why not others? said they are open to refugees
2:04 pm
coming through but in practice it looks a whole lot more like passing the problem on. the thing they have in common a policy of what you can only call people-dumping. macedonia dumps them on the serbia border, serbia dumps them on croatia's border and croatia is dumping them on the slovenia border. shengen zone free movement from here to germany the only country that's prepared to let these exhausted people finally rest. lawrence lee, on the border. >> and lawrence sent this update. >> reporter: pivotal role in the separation of refugees moving up from greece via
2:05 pm
macedonia and serbia. since hungary closed its borders and put the razor wire up, croatia has no choice but the disperse them. hungary doesn't want to take them in so they have been moving them by the thousands up towards slovenia as well, a couple of thousand or more today, a few more at other borders. the hungarians closing their borders, to be separated into a parcels of a few thousand dotted around a variety of different border crossings. so what does it mean on the immediate situation here? well it's not very organized frankly and the only good thing you can say that happened today is the presence of all these volunteers and members of the public who have come in large numbers offering foot and clothing and a wash, the
2:06 pm
weather's going to break and very heavy rain is forecast, not going to get shelter for these people, it's proved too difficult for slovenian or the croatian governments to provide any tents so they'll have to sleep presumably in the pouring rain or near a motor way. apart from that, some 3,000 refugees stuck at the border with serbia, the hungarians have refused to do anything about them. they are on their way up here as well and past that the croatian president has warned this as this group of 25,000 has been split out another wave of 40,000 is an its way there macedonia and serbia. the crisis is getting worse rather than better. many of the people seeking shelter in europe has moved from syria's world war. now more of an effort to end the
2:07 pm
war. secretary of state john kerry maintains syrian mountain bashar al-assad must go. now asoftenning of his stance. nadim baba has the details. >> john kerry met his british counterpart phillip hammond the foreign secretary here in london and after the meeting kerry said they discussed ways to push for a political solution. russia appears to be more committed to doing more against i.s.i.l, a reference to what kerry believes is a common aim of both the west and russia, particularly for air strikes. he was concerned about the prospect of russia increasing its military support for president assad with russian fighter jets already in the country. and he might have made a small concession when he said that president assad didn't have to go on day one or month one but
2:08 pm
he still insisted that assad did not form part of syria's political future. that's something that's always been a sticking point be when people tried to get syria's allies around a negotiating table for the syrian opposition, for john kerry the ball is clearly in the other part's. >> is russia prepared to bring him to the table and actually find solution to this violence? those are pregnant questions and we've made it very clear we've been open, we've made it very clear that we're not being doctrinaire about the specific date or time. we're open. but right now assad has refused to have a serious discussion. and russia has refused to help bring him to the table in order to do that. so that's why we are where we are. >> discussed europe's refugee
2:09 pm
crisis, what kerry called a humanitarian catastrophe. he'll speak to german chancellor angela merkel, whether a quota system, something merkel's very keen on to take the pressure off herself. but at the same time, kerry stressed the ultimate solution isn't about dividing up people in terms of numbers or giving them more assistance in europe but solving the core problem which he says is the conflict, the violence in syria and the lack of help for young people in the region. so clearly he is very, very concerned about getting things speeding up politically in syria. >> the world food program has been forced to suspend aids to hundreds of thousands of syrian refugees. the organization says it's running out of money. it means families sheltering in neighboring countries like jordan might go hungry.
2:10 pm
nizreen al shamali reports. >> it was only $1.50 a day but enough for the family to get by. now even that small amount has been cut off as of this month. it's illegal for refugees to work in jordan with but ahmed and jabil have no choice. they take turns taking care of the baby while the other works. they have just enough to buy baby milk and yogurt. >> we top don't know how much we our situation can get. >> the world food program needs to make life and death decisions who to feed and who to cut off, this manual works illegally on a nearby farm. >> i would face all risks to return to syria i am being humiliated and shamed here.

2:12 pm
u.n. and ngos, whatever they can. al jazeera, amman. joining us live on skype from aman in jordan. clearly there are a number of organizations working together to try to help out the refugees. what do you think the impact of the cut in funding to wfp is going to have on the ground? >> i think impact will be quite devastating for those refugees, the hundreds of thousands of refugees that rely on this as their primary mode of survival. i think that it's compounded by the fact that refugees have very limited options to make a living for themselves legally, in some cases risking being imprisoned or find or even deported if they're caught illegally working. so i think cuts will be -- are
2:13 pm
already devastating for hundreds of thousands of refugees, very worrying. >> a number of them obviously don't live in the camps. are they the ones to likely be worst-hit by this? >> the refugees that live outside the camps which is the vast majority, they've had their assistance cut more dramatically than those who live in the camps. the situation will get much worse for them very, very quickly. >> is it your experience that that's the kind of thing that's pushing them to make the risky journey across europe? >> definitely, this is one of the reasons which is consistentlconsistently cited. though i think it's a combination of factors, increasing hopelessness that the situation in syria will improve any time soon or there will be a possibility for these refugees to build a better future for themselves and their neighboring
2:14 pm
families in those countries, a combination of factors to make these desperate decisions to get to europe. >> what do you think needs to be done in the short, medium and long term, in the short term what needs to happen? >> funding situation is really desperate. compares to a year ago, the funding was $400 million less than there was a year ago but over 1 million more refugees. as a absolute bare minimum, beyond that there are other things which we think will happen quite quickly. the neighboring countries themselves can allow rchtio refo make a living at a rate that will have massive refugee population they should be supported to do that by donors
2:15 pm
to ease the strain on services and resources in these neighboring countries. >> just want to pick up the international community and the funding, is there money that's again promised and hasn't shown up or you are expecting donations or what is the quickest way to get the money there? >> given the scale of the crisis, oxfam and other ngos, rich nations need to provide more money. they're just not providing as much as they did last year even though the scale of the crisis is so many bigger so it needs a concerted push, to get solutions to refugees, both outside syria and neighboring countries. >> thank you very much for talking to us.
