Children 'dumped in streets by Greek parents ...can't afford them

Children are being abandoned on Greece's streets by their poverty-stricken families who cannot afford to look after them any more.
Youngsters are being dumped by their parents who are struggling to make ends meet in what is fast becoming the most tragic human consequence of the Euro crisis.
It comes as pharmacists revealed the country had almost run out of aspirin, as multi-billion euro austerity measures filter their way through society.

Abandoned: Children are being dumped on Greece's streets by their poverty-stricken families who cannot afford to look after them any more (file picture)

Athens' Ark of the World youth centre said four children, including a newborn baby, had been left on its doorstep in recent months.
One mother, it said, ran away after handing over her two-year-old daughter Natasha.
Four-year-old Anna was found by a teacher clutching a note that read: 'I will not be coming to pick up Anna today because I cannot afford to look after her. Please take good care of her. Sorry.'

And another desperate mother, Maria, was forced to give up her eight-year-old daughter Anastasia after losing her job.
She looked for work for more than a year, having to leave her child at home for hours at a time, and lived off food handouts from the local church.
She said: 'Every night I cry alone at home, but what can I do? It hurt my heart, but I didn’t have a choice.' She now works in a cafe but only make 16 per day and so cannot afford to take her daughter back.

Sold out: Greece is quickly running out of medicines as austerity measures start to filter through society

Centre founder Fr Antonios Papanikolaou told the Mirror: 'Over the last year we've had hundreds of parents who want to leave their children with us. They know us and trust us.
'Over the last year we've had hundreds of parents who want to leave their children with us. They know us and trust us.'

- Fr Antonios Papanikolaou

'They say they do not have any money or shelter or food for their kids, so they hope we might be able to provide them with what they need.'
Further evidence of Greeks feeling the pinch of austerity measures is the lack of aspirin and other medicines now available in the country.
Pharmacists are struggling to stock their shelves as the Greek government, which sets the prices for drugs, keeps them artificially low.
This means that firms are turning to sell the drugs outside of the country for a higher price - leading to stock depletion for Greeks.
Mina Mavrou, who runs one of the country's 12,000 pharmacies, said she spent hours each day pleading with drug makers, wholesalers and colleagues to hunt down medicines for clients.
And she said that even when drugs were available, pharmacists often must foot the bill up front, or patients simply do without.

My heart sank after hearing and watching the picture. I'm having my wedding in Greece in May and this is definitely not in the brochures.

I like to argue if I read nonsense.

Under 5 mortality rate

Greece 1990: 11
Greece 2009: 3

USA 1990: 11
USA 2009: 8

Germany 1990: 9
Germany 2009: 4

I would say that Greece has made enormous progress and now child mortality is 3 times lower than in the US (although you never know who has faked the statistics).

Life Expectancy 2009:

Greece 2009: 80
USA 2009 : 79
Germany 2009: 80

Who believes in some photographs originating from the Rainbow Press (Daily Mail) ?

Just media hype people.

The Daily Mail is not to be taken seriously.
