A refugee mother feeds her child onboard the Lesbos to Piraues boat. The boat is carrying a number of refugees who landed on inflatable boats from Turkey and are being taken to mainland Greece. Every day hundreds of refugees, mainly from Syria and Afghanistan, are crossing in small overcrowded inflatable boats the six mile channel from the Turkish coast to the island of Lesbos in Greece. Many spend their life savings, over $1,000, to buy a space on these boats.
