Detained like prisoners

on

Today some of our team members managed to get into Muria. In the last few days, this camp has turned into a prison without allowing them to leave. All the refugees came to us with the same questions: why are they detained? Why can’t they leave the camp and reach their families in Germany, Sweden..?
The refugees who reached Lesvos few days ago by boat from Turkey were very concerned and down.
Our Arabic speaking team members helped them liaise with lawyers, Doctors and other NGOs helping with translation with regards to dealing with sensitive cases and comforting them.
The refugees told us that they felt down, mentally exhausted and worried about the future. Confiding in our Arabic speakers about their issues and  feelings helped bring relief to them.
