The first migrant and refugee hotspot – a reception centre for identifying and registering migrants – opened on the Aegean island of Chios on Thursday, in the town’s old tannery.

The old building has been given a facelift to receive the refugees and migrants, with gravel strewn in the yard to reduce mud and the installation of taps and chemical toilets to cover basic hygiene needs.

By order of the Northern Aegean regional authority, mobile canteens have been banned from from operating in the vicinity of the centre and food for the refugees and migrants is delivered daily, paid for with funds from the regional authority and the ship owner Loukas Ktistakis, as well as the M. Tsakos Foundation.
