Inadequate medical care

We have collected testimonials which allege that pregnant women are receiving insufficient pre-natal care, if any.

There is also a severely disabled boy who had no access to psychological support, medical care, or clean clothes. 

You will also hear from the father of 2-year-old child with Down’s Syndrome describing how a medical note recommending the child for immediate transferral to Athens was confiscated in mid-April by personnel inside the camp. The child is allegedly awaiting a heart operation.

Finally, we have collected testimonial from volunteer medical staff on the island that a baby possibly suffering from bronchitis has not received treatment since arriving on the island on April 19th.
