Immigrants, most of them from Bangladesh, work as strawberry pickers in the fields of Nea Manolada, one of the main areas of strawberry cultivation in Greece. The working and living conditions are shocking. They are forced to work from dusk till dawn, with little or no money and no health care and insurance. More than 20 people live together in structures made of plastic sheets; they lack even basic sanitation and have only a hose for running water.
On Sunday 20 July, 2014 the organization "Solidarity for All" organized a visit to their camp in order to supply food and medicine and do health checks and provide aid where needed.
