Turkish Red Crescent installs cell phone charging station for illegal immigrants on Greek border

Featured Turkish Red Crescent installs cell phone charging station for illegal immigrants on Greek border

The Turkish Red Crescent (Kızılay) has installed a mobile phone charging station at Turkey’s western Pazarkule border crossing with Greece to help refugees overcome communication challenges and help them stay in touch with their families and friends.

Thousands of refugees and migrants have been waiting at the frontier since Turkey announced on Feb. 28 it would no longer try to stop them from reaching Europe but added that boat crossings would not be allowed, as they are too dangerous.

Zudairy added that the communication kit is being provided by the Turkish Red Crescent to solve migrants’ communication-related problems.

“They call their families and let them know about their whereabouts and keep them posted,” she said.
