Greece is becoming the focal point, with at least 50,000 refugees and migrants stranded there. Following the implementation of the EU-Turkey deal, newly-arrived vulnerable children and their families have been detained in closed facilities on the Greek islands until their individual interview and assessment take place – This process takes weeks and even months and does not comply with international or european law. Greece has already begun sending back dozens of people who it says do not qualify as asylum seekers under international law, many from Pakistan and north Africa.
There has been an urgent appeal for baby products, including ready made baby formula stage 1 & 2, baby food pouches (no meat of pasta), Nappies size 3, 4 & 5, fragrance free we wipes, baby bottle and kids cups. Care4Humanity has seen the love and devotion of many people wanting to help in form of these donations and has successfully made their first delivery to Help for Leros.
|Here are just a couple of pictures of the generous donations we have received so far for the appeal! A gracious THANKS to all who volunteer and donate!|
