Greece Approves Vatican’s ‘Humanitarian Corridor’ for Asylum Seekers (Photos)

December 5, 2019

ROME – Following negotiations between the competent authorities, the Greek citizen protection ministry and the Italian interior ministry have given their approval for the implementation of the Vatican’s “humanitarian corridor” from the island of Lesvos.

On Tuesday night, a total of 43 refugees departed from Mytilene for Athens and then to Rome. Among them were families from Cameroon, Togo and Afghanistan. They were accompanied by the Apostolic Almoner, Cardinal Konrad Krajewski.


ATHENS – Unable to travel in their own country because of record inflation and soaring prices on everything from gasoline to ferry boats and electric bills they can't pay, many Greeks can only watch the tourist throngs everywhere.
