Humanitarian crisis threatens the Greek city of Perama

Help

As unemployment rises and social benefits are cut under the country's austerity measures, tough financial times are looming for more and more people in Greece.

Almost 60% of the population are jobless and many people rely heavily on charities to get basic food and medical help.
