New wave of asylum seekers arriving in Greece: Does the government really care about migrant people?

Last year, a total of 3,231 people lost their lives or went missing in the sea while traveling from the north of Africa to Europe, according to UNHCR. Does the Greek government really care about this data? The country hasn’t changed any measures to host asylum seekers properly. Yet it receives millions of European funds every year destined to host refugees.

Leaving Greece, and then what?

These last days in Polykastro have been full of changes: many families who had been waiting for years to complete their asylum process are getting international protection or refugee status and are leaving Greece. This would therefore seem to be the end of the exhausting migration journey, but actually it is not; it’s just another step on a path full of challenges.
