Fewer Apathetic Refugee Children

Published torsdag 27 december 2007 kl 11.03

New statistics in Sweden show a sharp reduction in the number of refugee children suffering from severe apathy – unable to wake up or eat food.

Doctors claim that there are only a few such children in Sweden today – compared to 160 a few years ago.

This is explained by better medical treatment and a reduction in the number of refugee families waiting for years for an answer to their appeals for asylum or going underground to avoid expulsion.

While some have argued that these children were only pretending, others maintain that the anxieties and depression of the family severely affected the children.
