On the island of Tilos in the Aegean, there are no “hotspots” or camps: Here, refugees are welcomed with open arms.

Tilos is only 18 kilometers from the coast of Turkey. In the summer of 2015, more than 700 refugees were landing here every week. Since then, the influx has slowed, as it has on all the Greek islands. But the attitude of the inhabitants of Tilos has remained the same, welcoming and showing solidarity. Many people have become involved in the day-to-day lives of the 40 or so refugees who now live on the island. Maria Kamma, the mayor of Tilos, would even like to welcome more.
Thanks to the NGO Solidarity Now and the UNHCR, a housing center has been set up, the only one its kind in the Greek islands.
