Announcement for the lockdown of the RIC of Fylakio – Orestiada
Following the information about the persons found positive with #Covid19 at the Reception and Identification Center of Fylakio – Orestiada (in Evros region near the Turkish border) and the relevant announcements from the Ministry of Migration Policy for the lockdown of the specific facility, we inform the public, our beneficiaries and donors, that we remain in the area in order to continue offering our services, based on best interest of the people seeking international protection who are currently in the RIC, always following the applicable health and safety guidelines for our team and beneficiaries.
We are deeply concerned about the outbreak of the #Covid19 pandemic throughout Greece in its second wave now. It affects us all, without any exceptions. At this critical moment, we hope that we will not witness racist phenomena and targeting of people seeking international protection who are currently in the Evros RIC.
