The Zedan family came from Edlib in Syria. The father used to work as an electrician and the mother as a french language teacher. They travel with their children that are 5, 6 and 8 years old. They have been travelling for a month and they crossed to Greece from Turkey on a dinghy that landed at Samos island.
Refugees often arrive to Thessaloniki by train and then they go to the intercity bus station to board on the bus to Eidomeni border where they can cross to the Republic of Macedonia on foot.
