Economic crisis has risen to new heights in Greece, as some parents are now forced to give up their children and put them in foster care because of poverty.
The effects of the austerity measures approved by the IMF and the EU are becoming more tragic in Greece as there has been an increase in the number of newborn babies dumped outside clinics, and in that of children being offloaded on charities and put in foster care.
“The crisis had killed us. I am ashamed to say but it had got to the point where I couldn’t even afford the EUR 2 needed to buy bread,” Dimitris Gasparinatos, Greek citizen who put in an official request for three of his boys and one of his daughters to be taken into care, said.
