UNICEF: More risks for refugee children

Body: 

A year after the start of the Euro-Turkish agreement, UNICEF said that displaced children and refugees face a greater risk of being deported, detained, exploited and deprived in Greece.

As UNICEF said in its statement:
Psychological problems have increased as a result of stress and frustration among children and their families.
Unaccompanied children suffer from psychological stress, anxiety, violence and aggression, where they exhibit behavior that entails serious risks such as drug abuse and prostitution, as well as self-harm.
Nearly half of the 2100 unaccompanied children still live in poor conditions, while 200 live in an environment similar to the detention environment.
Only 2,500 of the 15,000 school-age children go to school, where children stranded in Greece have already lost three years of schooling.
