Tell UK Government to provide sanctuary for refugee children
The situation on the Greek islands is at breaking point.
The MSF clinic on the Greek island of Lesvos already treats children for war injuries, asthma and epilepsy. But they are also seeing children younger than six years old who suffer from depression and anxiety, and some who are self-harming or attempting suicide.
The current COVID-19 pandemic makes things worse. People are packed into cramped, squalid, unhygienic conditions, with just one toilet for every 167 people.
We adding our voice to Doctors Without Borders/ Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) in calling again on the Government to provide new, safe, legal routes to safety for unaccompanied, vulnerable children without family in the UK, and for such provisions to be included in the Immigration Bill that is currently going through Parliament.
We are not asking the UK to solve this problem on its own. We are simply asking for the UK, like many other countries, to provide sanctuary for some of these children.
