Noting that the events during the migration will increase the mental burden on children, Psychiatrist Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sevcan Karakoç Demirkaya said: “Even if children survive in the migration route, they will not forget what they’ve gone through for a lifetime. Suffering from both homesickness and the loss of parents and other loved ones is especially pathological.”. Greek soldiers intervened with gas bombs to immigrants waiting around Pazarkule Border Gate. Particularly women and children affected by the brawl and gas experienced hard times. From time to time, Greek soldiers tried to disperse people including women and children, who were waiting in front of the Pazarkule Border Gate and the wire mesh around it by throwing tear gas bombs. Psychiatrist from Istanbul Gelisim University Assoc. Prof. Dr. Sevcan Karakoç Demirkaya talking on the effects of migration on children, said: “Even if children survive the migration route, they will carry the feelings of “being left behind” and “being a migrant” for a lifetime. Mourning from the homeland is especially pathological when the loss of parents and other loved ones is added. This, in turn, makes it difficult to adapt to the newly established order and the migrated area.” You can visit www.gelisim.edu.tr to see the detailed news.
