Vienna bank becomes shelter for Iraqi refugeesAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Twelve-year old Sara Altaie checks messages on her mobile phone in her family's room in a refugee shelter in Vienna, Austria. While the application of her family for asylum is being considered, the Iraqi family lives in this temporary shelter constructed in a branch of the Erste Bank.
The shelter is coordinated by Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe Österreich, a member of the Diakonie network in Austria, which is a member of the ACT Alliance. Some 85 refugees currently live in the former bank, and several bank employees volunteer to assist the refugees sheltered there.
