[Greece] MSF Says at least 140 Children with Serious Health Conditions Living at Moria Migrant Camp

26 Jan 2020

The Moria complex on the island of Lesbos has capacity for 3,000 people, but there are now more than 19,000 people crammed inside, more than 1,000 of which are unaccompanied migrant children. Doctors Without Borders (MSF) claims that many of these children face epilepsy, diabetes and heart disease. 

'The government's general unwillingness to find a swift, systematic solution for these children, including some babies, is outrageous—it harms their health and could lead to lifelong consequences or even death', said Dr Hilde Vochten, MSF medical coordinator in Greece.
