Refugees Seeking Shelter in Greek Island Launch Cry for Help

Refugees Seeking Shelter in Greek Island Launch Cry for Help

300 Palestinian refugees from Syria who have sought refuge in the Greek island of Crete have been subjected to a dire humanitarian situation as the Greek government suspended granting social insurance cards (AMKA) to the refugees, preventing them from social welfare services and healthcare.

On July 11, 2019, Greece’s Labor and Social Affair Minister, Nikos Vroutsis, has cancelled a ministerial decision regarding the issuing of social security number (AMKA) to migrants, refugees, asylum seekers, unaccompanied refugee children and non-EU nationals.

Sometime earlier, the government of Greece sent notifications to 900 asylum-seekers who were granted “refugee status” to evacuate their European-funded shelters by the end of March and ruled for suspending their allowances.

Migrants stranded in Greece continue to denounce the absence of vital services and the spread of poisonous reptiles outside of their poorly-equipped tents.

The Greek authorities continue to drag their feet over the refugees’ calls to have their legal status worked out and to provide them with safe shelters.

AGPS has kept record of the death of dozens of refugees onboard Greece-bound ships. Several others have been arrested by Turkish coast guards.

Activists estimate that around 4,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria are seeking refuge in Greece.
