The Jungle Children

Write to your MP.
Dear Rt Honourable Member
At the time of writing, the UK has managed to take in only about 300 children from the Calais migrant camp. By contrast, since 2007 the UK has deported almost 3000 children, mainly to Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Syria.
There is a clear moral case for the UK to do better.
The Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which the UK is a signatory, is founded on four Ps: participation of children in decisions affecting them, prevention of discrimination and exploitation, protection from harm and neglect and provision of basic needs.
