Fin­ish­ing touches at Elaionas camp

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A tem­po­rary campin Elaionas, near cen­tral Athens, to house refugees who are cur­rently camp­ing in Pe­dion tou Areos park is due to be ready by the end of the week, the gov­ern­ment hopes.

Author­i­ties are wait­ing for the sup­ply of new air-con­di­tion­ing units for the dozens of pre­fab­ri­cated struc­tures that have been placed on the plot of land owned by the City of Athens.

While author­i­ties wait for the cool­ing units to be de­liv­ered, they are mak­ing at­tempts to make the bare plot more liv­able by plant­ing shrubs and in­stalling canopies to pro­vide shade for up to 600 peo­ple that the camp is de­signed to ac­com­mo­date.
