View of the LM Village, home to more than 300 Syrian and Iraqi refugees who are waiting for their relocation scheme applications to be processed. ; Located on the northwest of the Peloponnese near the village of Myrsini the LM village is now temporary home to more than 300 Syrian and Iraqi refugees, more than half of whom are babies and young children.
All of the families at the LM village have applied for the EU’s relocation scheme but none of them know how long they will have to wait before they are able to start their new life’s.
The driving force behind the idea of offering a disused tourist resort to house Syrian refugees was Nabil Iosif Morad, a 54 year old doctor of Syrian descent who has lived in the area of Ilia, Greece for the past 25 years and is the first non-ethnically Greek mayor to be ever elected in the country.
He offered the LM Village (which is owned by the municipalities of Andravidia-Kyllini and Fyli) to the Ministry of Migration with the condition that it would be used to house families and women traveling alone with their children.
The local community provides food, medicine and clothes for the new arrivals and volunteer doctors and lawyers visit the site regularly to offer advice.
The local volunteers who visit the site daily say that by now the refugees living there have become family and that they will continue offering their time and help for as long as it is necessary.
