A total of fifty unaccompanied refugee children left Greece on Saturday morning to begin a new, hopefully, brighter life in Germany.
Greece’s Premier Kyriakos Mitsotakis and the country’s migration minister George Koumoutsakos went to the Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport of Athens to see the minors leaving.
”Today is a very moving day, as 50 unaccompanied refugee children are leaving Greece to find a new home in Germany,” Mitsotakis stated.
The Prime Minister stressed that for many months now, the Greek Government has been struggling to mobilize other European countries to support Greece, so that more unaccompanied refugee children, who escaped war and persecution, can find new families and make a fresh start in their lives.
Mitsotakis estimated that a total of 1,500 minor refugees will eventually be relocated to other EU member states in the coming months.
The children are between 5 and 16 years old and come from the Reception and Identification Centers (KYT) of Chios, Samos and Lesbos.
