Run by the Greek navy and operated by NGOs, the camp is located in a vast industrial zone next to Piraeus port. As a former shipyard, it is one of the most developed areas in infrastructure. With electricity, water heaters and air conditioning, the camp has 410 container homes which are equipped with small kitchenettes, washrooms, and beds. After the closure of Greece's northern borders in February 2016, more than 62,000 refugees and migrants are stranded in Greece.
