Thousands of Migrants Facing Horrendous Conditions on Greek Island, Warns MSF

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) announced on Nov. 16 that a 9-month-old baby died in the Moria refugee camp in Greece.

“We have confirmed today by the local hospital in #Lesbos that a 9-month-old baby has died some days ago from severe dehydration in #Moria camp #Greece,” MSF said on Twitter.

The medical charity group said children are dying in Greece due to horrific living conditions and a lack of adequate care.

Nearly 15,000 people are trapped in Moria, among them, 5,000 minors, it said, as it urged Greece and the EU to take immediate action.

At least 1,000 migrants have died this year in the Mediterranean Sea, UN data has indicated.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said at least 15,000 victims lost their lives in the Mediterranean crossings since 2014.

The Moria refugee camp on Lesbos, Greece, was designed for 3,000 people. There is currently over 13,000 people living there.

Overpopulated refugee camps cause a shortage of resources, not least healthcare. Often mental health issues are overlooked, despite many refugees having experienced severe trauma.
