Missed Opportunities To Help

Screenshot_2016-03-05-14-36-53-1It’s shocking to read how vulnerable children are being abused in the migrant camps near Calais. But it’s even more shocking to think these unaccompanied children, some being very young children, have passed through so many countries without any offer of help.

The adults seem more than able to look after themselves. They have built shops, hotels, churches and mosques and built a community of sorts in quite a short time. But surely the children should have been taken into care long before they reached Calais, if only for their own protection.
