Greece welcomes first 10 lone child refugees from Ukraine

Ten unaccompanied refugee children ranging in age from 10 months to 17 years old arrived in Greece from Ukraine on Saturday in an operation to evacuate vulnerable civilians from the war-torn country.

According to an announcement from the Migration and Asylum Ministry, the children were accompanied by three adults acting as chaperones. They were met by a police convoy at the Promachonas border crossing and brought to Athens. 

They will be staying in accommodation run by The Home Project organization, with the support of the International Organization for Migration, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the NGO Metadrasi.
