When the migrants arrived at their destination, they went to refugee camps that were often unhealthy and dirty. their condition of life was very hard they were starving their clothes were just a piece of cloth and some did not even have shoes. Their house if we can call it a house were just a tent or shelter that had sheet metal roof or sheets.
