#Thread: of a Real #Story of my grandmother in #Greece close at the Turkish Bulgarian borders encountering illegal refugees yesterday night at her home outside.
1/ Yesterday Last night my grandmother in the #Greek state of #Ebros what is close to the Turkish and the Bulgarian borders, encountered three #Algerian illegal migrants outside her home in a silent town in the dark and rainy day.
2/ The three illegal migrants from #Algerian decent were outside the home of my grandmother and grandfather. The 3 men were soaked from the rain and were in a cold state. They knocked on the door because a friend of theirs did not feel well and went ill.
3/ When my grandmother opened the door she was in a small shock because these kind of people do not live in that part of the Greek state in #Greece in Ebros. When they talked to my grandmother she did not understand them. And she thought they wanted money from her.
4/ That is when is when my aunt kicked in because she went to visit her mother as part of a long vacation she takes. The 3 men wanted from my grandmother to call the cops or a hospital, but my aunt knows so little English she called in my uncle what is a former #Greek commander.
5/ When my uncle took over the conversation he said that the hospital is pretty far from my town in #Greece, about 40 miles away. But said he would call the cops to come and take them to bring their friend to the hospital. But when my aunt saw the 3 young black Algerian boys...
6/ Soaked in the rain and freezing she offered the 3 Algerian men a blanket and prepared some bread with Greek feta cheese and tomato what they ate in a rush because they didn't had to eat for hours or maybe days walking... And waited for the cops to come and take them...
7/ When the three illegal Algerian migrants ate the 3 plates what is always pretty full of food because i know my family pretty good. They offered to pay a 20 euro bill to my Grandmother for the food, but they rejected that money. and police arrived soon after a few minutes...
8/ Because i know my family good and they are always concerned like most #Greek parents are, they talked to the cops if they would have offered them some food at the police station they said yes bus made she still made 3 big sandwiches instead to eat today or hours after...
9/ The police took them and went to the hospital to offer that Algerian friend some treatment, soon later the cops took the 3 men to the station to be recorded at the police station because they had no papers they had to fingerprint them and take pictures...
10/ At some research the 3 illegal Algerian migrants walked and travelled thousands of miles, just to reach #Europe and wanted to head to #Germany. But this story shows that walking thousand of miles and seeing hospitality isn't bad but! You have to show some empathy to people.
But you need to apply to the countries laws you travel into and give yourself in the police authorities to be safe instead of illegally entering the country and walking without permission from the countries laws. The 3 Algerian men are now in a migrant camp waiting for status.
