Davidson Solanki, International Programmes Manager for Us (formerly USPG), reported from Athens: ‘In Victoria Square, Athens, migrants congregate having arrived from the Greek islands. Here I met many young families, women and children who were tired, hungry and scared, some of them were traumatised. With the Salvation Army, we helped to distribute food, and gave the children schoolbags containing stationery.
