Living conditions at the provisional settlement for new arrivals on the island of Chios are appalling. Four hundred people, men, women, children and elderly, could soon find their tents in the sea.
Sanitary facilities are absent. Dozens of rats jump around from rock to rock, from tent to tent.
The tents provided by the UNHCR could be soon found floating in the sea.
“It is like hell,” refugees and migrants tell reporters of local newspaper Politis Chios.
The provisional settlement was established when the capacity of Souda camp was exhausted and people had put provisional tents outside.
According to official data, there are 2,072 refugees and migrants on the island.
