Croatia will receive 12 girls from the burned-out Moria migrant camp on the Greek island of Lesbos. Due to the fire, 12 thousand migrants were left without a single home, although according to many characteristics the actual camp was inadequate for life, writes Večernji list.
In addition to Croatia, nine other European countries are participating in a relocation plan for 400 unaccompanied minor children.
The Ministry of the Interior said that ten children were supposed to arrive in Croatia in April, but the procedure was stopped due to the earthquake in Zagreb.
The arrival of the children from Lesbos was also welcomed by President Milanović. "I have heard that the Croatian government has decided to receive a certain number of refugees and I consider it a nice gesture and a humane move and I support it," said Zoran Milanovic, the Croatian president.
“I don’t see who could reasonably be against helping children who live in significantly different conditions than our children do,” he said.
