Refugee women and children, BBC Woman’s Hour

This week BBC’s Woman’s Hour have focused on the plight of refugee women & children in the makeshift Calais camp.

Over the past three days reporter Catharine Carr spoke to women & children at the Unofficial Woman & Children’s centre (run by Liz Clegg & her daughter Inca, and funded by Help Refugees).

Today Woman’s Hour focused on the 608 unaccompanied children in Calais – 157 of whom have the legal right to be reunited with their families in the UK. Liz Clegg gave an extensive and heart wrenching interview about the unaccompanied children, many as young as just 8 years old, before our co-founder Lliana Bird joined presenter Nicky in the studio to discuss the issues further.
