Syrian refugee chronicles daily struggles in Greece

A former chef is offering refugees a channel to vent their anger at poor living conditions in Greek camps.

    Basil Yatakan is a former chef from Damascus.

    As a refugee in Greece, he is trying out a new career - as a journalist.

    He is chronicling the daily struggles of his fellow refugees from the Middle East and curates his films, which are shot on a mobile phone, on Facebook under the banner refugees.tv.

    It has become a vehicle for other refugees to vent their anger at their poor living conditions.

    Al Jazeera’s Laurence Lee reports from the Nea Kavala camp.
