Here’s a chance to see co-founder Josie Naughton set the record straight on BBC’s The Victoria Derbyshire Show regarding the relocating of 1500 refugees in Calais. Josie also explains Citizens UK court case for reuniting unaccompanied minors with UK family. With Josie is Hassan, a Syrian refugee, who lived in the camp in Calais before arriving in the UK where he is currently seeking asylum. Hassan explains why he left Syria and why he wants to live here.
We want to thank Hassan for agreeing to take part – enabling refugees to have their own voice and tell their own story is so important – we are pleased and proud to know him.
We would not be able to do our work without your support and kindness. Many of the refugees we help are fleeing the conflict zones of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Others are trying to escape political oppression in countries like Eritrea. All are human beings like us. As well as providing immediate physical assistance, we want to help refugees maintain their dignity.
