The French authorities have announced plans to begin demolishing large sections of the Jungle in Calais on the 22nd of February. There are over 5,000 people in the camp and only 1,500 spaces for them to move to.
We don’t want the Jungle to last for a single minute longer than it has to. But as the authorities clear the camp they must ensure that refugee children are protected – reunited with their families in Britain where possible and entered into child protection in France where not.
Over 100 major public figures have written this open letter to the Prime Minister. Add your name to the urgent call to David Cameron here below. Please also donate to the refugee children’s fund via our friends at Help Refugees. All funds raised go straight to either humanitarian support for refugee minors or to identifying children seeking to be reunited with their loved ones and ensuring they get the legal support they need.
