Jobless migrants heading back

One of the people working at the International Organization for Immigration (IOM) center in Alimos, on the southern coast of Athens, points to a bearded elderly man with a lost look about him.
“He doesn’t speak anymore. He’s lost his voice. All his papers were stolen and now he’s lost. He used to talk to us, half in Greek, half in Urdu, but with all the stress, he’s just stopped talking,” the IOM employee tells me and then goes off to look for someone else from Pakistan to try to get through to him.
