How You Can Help the People in Calais

We are facing a global crisis, with over 60million people displaced from their homes (more than any time since World War II), and whilst Germany welcomes 30,000 Syrian refugees with banners and cheers, Britain, one of the richest countries in the world, reluctantly pledges to take in just 500. How has it take the image of a dead child, face down in the sand, for so many people to realise they have a heart? The pictures of poor little Kiyiya VuranInsanlik were heart wrenching, but maybe the saddest part of it is how many young lives have been lost that seemingly had no impact at all. That's the harshest tragedy imaginable. It's time to take action and stop this.
