Queen Rania of Jordan visits refugees camp in Lesvos

Filed under: , ,

On Monday, Queen Rania of Jordan became the latest high-profile figure to visit refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos. After greeting representatives from NGOs, she was surrounded by hundreds of the camp's residents, some of whom tried to give her details of their asylum cases in hope that she might help. Over 650 of the refugees at Kara Tepe arrived after March 20th and the implementation of the EU-Turkey deal and are stuck in limbo waiting to hear if they will be allowed to stay in Greece, or be deported to Turkey. Jordan is host to between 650k and 1.3m Syrian refugees, many of whom fled to Europe after finding it impossible to make a living. Not all Syrians on Lesbos were impressed by the Queen's visit, some said she should take care of the refugees in Jordan instead of coming to Greece. With deportations to Turkey due to resume on Tuesday, the residents of Kara Tepe face more fear and uncertainty as they wait to learn their fate.
