“I left Syria because of the war. I was alone, without my family, so I applied for a relocation, and Finland welcomed me to come". Taha is a 16 year old Syrian who was relocated by IOM from Greece to Finland through the EU Relocation scheme. In this short video, he tells us about his experiences thoughout his journey, and how he is getting along now in Finland. The EU Relocation scheme offers a safe and legal way for asylum seekers in clear need of international protection to be transferred from Italy and Greece to other European countries participating in the programme. As we approach the 2nd anniversary of the programme, over 26,000 people have been relocated from Italy and Greece with IOM’s support (as of August 22, 2017).
