Evidence of children’s rights abuses at Greek refugee camp
A new report on the Schisto refugee camp in Greece raises serious concerns over children’s rights, with their safety, education and wellbeing all found to be at risk from conditions at the camp.
Insufficient, poor quality housing and sub-standard sanitary conditions are criticised in the report, as is the inadequacy and insufficiency of the low-grade food provided to residents..
Attacks and abuse
The Network for Children’s Rights’ report also raises concerns about safety, privacy and security issues for the women and children of the camp; several attacks and incidents of abuse towards women and children have been recorded. The report also finds that there is no proper educational programme, but only rudimentary tutoring inside the camp.
