Doctors Without Frontiers: Greece Should Stop Evictions of Vulnerable Refugees

ATHENS — Doctors Without Frontiers on Monday called on the government to stop evictions of vulnerable people and find solutions to house them by expanding the existing housing programmes, noting that refugees with serious physical and mental health issues were finding themselves homeless.

The NGO said that at least 30 patients with serious illnesses, including torture survivors, cancer patients and single mothers with chronic health problems had been either evicted or informed of their imminent eviction, and would be left on the street without any financial assistance, including women in advanced stages of pregnancy now sleeping in Victoria Square.
