CNN: Serving Syrian Refugees / by Harriet Dedman

Since arriving back in New York from Greece - my team and I have been working on a number of video pieces on the lives and landscapes of Lesvos, Greece, as thousands of refugees continue to arrive on the island every day. 

Our recent coverage for CNN Money and CNN International goes live tonight - as we caught up with Syrian refugee, Hasan Ataya, who was smuggled out of Turkey by boat and landed on the Greek island of Lesvos. Unlike the majority of those arriving, Ataya stayed on the island - setting up a Halal restaurant with local Greek partner and friend Thomaniku Alqi. Together they founded 'Damas' - a restaurant providing a much needed refugee for those landing on the shores of Europe.
