Every morning, two small trucks of Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) park in front of one of the 3 stadiums that are art of the sporting complex of Elliniko. In the suburb of Athens, the former Elliniko airport has been converted into three sport stadiums for the Olympic Games in 2004. The infrastructures are now used to host men, women and children who have fled their country. Most of the people here are from Afghanistan. Most of them have fled conflict and violence, leaving everything behind, risking their life to reach Europe, walking across the snowy mountains of Pakistan, carrying their children at arms, hiding from police, armed groups of all kinds, crossing the sea between Turkey and Greece on makeshift boats.
For more than a month now MSF is running mobile clinics here with midwifes and psychologist.
