Unemployment brings harsh times for Greeks

Lacking basic health provisions, many forced to rely on charity, while human rights abuses continue to flourish.

    More than a quarter of the Greek workforce continue to remain without jobs and uninsured as a result of the country's austerity measures.

    Many people struggling from the loss of employment and inadequate social protection have been forced to rely on charity to survive.

    The deteriorating economic situation has also led to human rights abuses, including attacks on immigrants by vigilante groups.
