**THIS IS NOT CRS PROGRAMMING**

Mohammed,16, and Samir, 2, (not their real names), are traveling with their mother to Germany where their uncle lives. It took them 20 days to travel to Greece, travelling to Turkey and then to Lesvos. The mother said they had spent 3 days waiting in Idomeni. It has been difficult for the children to sleep at night.

More than 930,000 refugees arrived in Greece in the past 12 months. Last year several thousand people were crossing the border at Idomeni every day but now there are tight restrictions. Caritas is providing food and WASH.
