November 3, 2020

ATHENS — Migration and Asylum Minister Notis Mitarachi has ordered that the ministry supply containers for the temporary housing of Samos residents left homeless after the powerful earthquake on October 30, the ministry announced on Tuesday.

The transfer of the containers, which will be taken from the Zervos migrant reception facility, will be coordinated by the general secretary for the reception of asylum seekers, Manos Logothetis.

Ministry services will also arrange the transfer of 20 tents, 500 sleeping bags, 1,000 blankets and 265 camp beds for Samos residents that had to spend the first nights after the earthquake outdoors, while 100 tents will be sent to Samos by the UN High Commission for Refugees, after consultation with the ministry.



Terrified tourists who had to walk along beaches to flee wildfires on the popular island of Rhodes in the summer of 2023 can go back there for vacations now, partly paid by the New Democracy government eager to keep foreign arrivals coming this year.
