Almost a third of UNHCR accommodation empty while refugees and asylum-seekers continue to sleep on the streets

In Greece the current occupancy rate of UNHCR accommodation is 71.2%.

This means almost a third of places are empty.

This is not because there is no one to fill them.

Volunteers and workers on the ground in Greece know that there are refugees and asylum seekers sleeping on the streets and in squats who have been trying to get accommodation for months.
