Minor Stranded In Greece Alone Finally With Family Again
Hassan was a 17 year old minor when he was stranded alone in Greece. He got separated from the rest of his family while escaping Syria, and was trying to get reunified with his brother and uncle in Germany. Hassan was suffering a lot from the separation. On top of that, his reunification process was stuck in the mills of the system, lost in the chaos of (non-)communication between different German agencies. We made countless phone calls, facilitated communication, worked to convince and remind officials of the special vulnerability and rights of unaccompanied minors and their especially difficult situation in Greece. In the end, we were able to finally get his reunification approved. At the end of summer 2017, Hassan was able to travel to Germany and be with family again.
Hassan’s Father: “I want everybody to know how difficult it was for my son in Greece, and that he was stuck there for such a long time, and that it only worked because of the help of the Mobile Info Team. Hassan is now settling up in Germany and he is so happy to be with his brother and uncle again. I really cannot express how grateful I am for what you have done for us!”
