Help Child Refugees be Reunited with their Families
Every child refugee deserves to be reunited with their families.
YOU can help us make that happen in the UK…
BUT! We have to act quickly…
For some very sad reason, the UK government has voted NO to helping unaccompanied child refugees from reuniting with their families here in the UK.
But the House of Lords disagrees (we love the House of Lords)! They think former World War II refugee, Lord Alf Dubs, is right to ask the UK government to KEEP the law which allows family reunions. This law is known as the Dublin III Treaty.
Find out more about Lord Alf Dubs and the Dublin III Treaty HERE.
BUT! As the UK is leaving the European Union on 31st December 2020, the Dublin III Treaty can be broken And this government wants to break it! And worse still, they don’t want to create any new laws or ways to help unaccompanied child refugees. This means hundreds of refugee children travelling alone will be unable to legally join their families, or be gifted safety and sanctuary, here in the UK. Tragically, this also means many more children may die trying to reach their loved ones using illegal and dangerous routes.
To write to as many MPs as we can, just as fast as we can!
Maybe if we ask them nicely to listen to the House of Lords and Lord Alf Dubs, we can keep the laws and amendments which will help child refugees be with their families and get help too…
