Billionaire George Soros Earmarks $500 Million For Migrants And Refugees (Forbes)
Hedge fund billionaire George Soros said on Tuesday that he is giving $500 million of his nonprofit organization’s funds to be invested on work opportunities for migrants and refugees, especially those arriving into Europe.
