The Greek Europe Reporter reports that the United Nations refugee agency and U.N. children’s fund are setting up 20 centers to support and protect children and families fleeing war and persecution as they move across Europe’s well-worn migration routes.  The so-called Blue Dot hubs are intended to be a safe place for children and families facing many risks once they arrive in Greece and move along the Balkan migratory route, which includes the FYROM, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia.  A huge blue dot identifies the locations as places where children can play and they and their families can receive vital services, protection and counseling in a single location.
