A new assessment by Save the Children in Greece has revealed that refugee and migrant children are being left at risk of exploitation and disease, because of an almost total lack of official reception facilities.
Currently around 1,000 people are landing on the Dodecanese islands every day, the majority of them Syrians seeking sanctuary in Europe. In June alone 4,270 children landed on the islands, 86 of them unaccompanied.
