Transitional housing is rented or purchased from the refugee centre to provide shelter and security for vulnerable people until their asylum status and near future are clarified. For example, a woman from Afghanistan: She has rejected the dubious offer of some men to live with them and has so far preferred to live hidden in a park with her two small children - out of justified fear of human trafficking or abuse of herself and her children.
For the weakest
Many refugee orphans without parents have also landed in Greece. Such children between the ages of 4 and 11 are easy prey for pedophiles and human traffickers, a kind of fair game - they disappear, nobody notices.
Mitra, the sister of our director Parisa D., has moved from London to Athens and is taking care of the families, who had recently lived in parks, in our newly acquired house with much love and patience.
