A group of Hazara people from Afghanistan pray inside the Hotel Capitan Elias in Kos.
The Captain Elias hotel, having closed and subsequentkly repossessed by the banks has lain abandoned for many years. Now, it is open to the refugees who are arriving by boat in Kos. The conditions there are harsh, with poor hygiene and safety. MSF staff work inside the hotel to improve conditions and provide medical and psychological assistance.
