The refugee problem at the beginning of 2016 was severe at the north Aegean Greek islands. Hundreds of people were trying to escape the war in Syria reaching in any possible means on Chios or Lesvos, where the responsible authorities couldn’t handle the refugee issue due to the huge numbers of people. Voluntary teams and simple people at the beginning of the refugee crisis tried their best to help in any possible way the situation.
