At least 600 childen in total will be hosted in Greek summer camps in the month of August.

The first group of 117 Ukrainian children had arrived in Athens and Thessaloniki on August 5, and they will depart for Ukraine on Sunday, while a third group is expected on August 17.

Helping coordinate the plan is the International Organization for Migration, in collaboration with Deputy Migration & Asylum Minister Sofia Voultepsi and Ukrainian Ambassador Sergii Shutenko.
