Almlihan Kanwan, 32, fled her village with her husband, Alghafor Isa, 39, and their seven children in 2018, when her eldest son was injured in a bombing. From Turkey they passed to the Greek island of Lesvos, where they stayed at Moria reception centre before being settled in an apartment in the Kallithea area of the Greek capital, where the two eldest children are attending school. The nine-member Syrian family from close to Deir ez-Zor are among more than 25,000 refugees benefitting from the EU-funded ESTIA (Emergency Support to Integration and Accommodation) programme in Greece.
