Crete mayors agree to host 400 unaccompanied refugee minors

Mayors on the island of Crete have agreed to host 400 unaccompanied refugee minors in accommodation structures. This was decided in a meeting between the Regional Union of Municipalities of Crete and the Deputy Labor Minister, Domna Michailidou.

According to the plan, about 400 children will be accommodated on the island, 100 per regional unit/prefecture. Each small structure will accommodate 30 children.

During the meeting, however, the mayors set out the conditions for the children hosting. They suggested the need for structures and staff in order to accommodate unaccompanied refugee minors in the best possible way.

the deputy minister had directly called on the island’s mayors and the local community to contribute more to the management of the Refugee issue. She even appealed at the humanity, philanthropy and hospitality of the Cretan people.

“We believe that Crete in this area will show a very good and positive will, with the first step being the creation of child-friendly housing structures and then exploring what can be done for adult refugees and immigrants,” Michailidou said.
