The Agios Andreas camp will be prepared well ahead of the arrival annually of hosted children and adults scheduled to stay there in 2020, while the IOM will cover the facility’s maintenance costs for the duration of the children’s stay and for a short time after they leave, clarified the municipality of Athens.
