Among the main concerns of the families is keeping their children warm and safe from hypothermia.

 

According to the UN, thousands of women and children live in makeshift camps in Greece’s northern border. The Idomeni camp alone is home to 4,000 children, with doctors warning that conditions are dangerous for them.
