Greek Children Dumped in the Streets by Parents

Due to the mounting financial problems and austerity measures taken by the Greek government, parents who can no longer afford to take care of their children are dumping them in the streets.

A four-year-old child, Anna, was found by a teacher clutching a note that simply read: "I will not be coming to pick up Anna today because I cannot afford to look after her. Please take good care of her. Sorry."

Anna is just one of the youngsters who have been abandoned by their parents who are struggling to make ends meet.

In addition to the children being abandoned, the country is running out of medicine. Pharmacists stated that the country had almost run out of aspirin.
