Greece, at the crossroads of East and West and the gateway to the European Union, has set the protection of unaccompanied migrant and refugee children as its highest moral obligation, President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou said on Thursday after visiting a related facility of the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in Halandri, north of Athens.

Greece has assumed the responsibility “despite the fact that is bearing a disappropriate burden in the migration and refugees wave,” she noted.

Sakellaropoulou, accompanied by Deputy Migration and Asylum Minister Sofia Voultepsi and newly appointed Special Secretary for the protection of unaccompanied children Heracles Moskoff, was briefed by the coordinators about the facility’s operations, and she spoke with children hosted there.

“Τhe operation of six hosting facilities for unaccompanied minors, which was implemented by IOM and particularly the structure in Halandri for boys aged 12 to 18, provides children that abandoned their country with the opportunity to heal their wounds and make a new start,” said Sakellaropoulou, adding that “we are here to offer them a brighter future.”
