The situation is Calais is just one representation of the massive human migration we are currently witnessing and Rob’s blog, based on Surindar and her colleagues’ work (click here) helps us all to understand a bit more about the desperate situation thousands of people continue to face.
The thing is, we can individually feel pretty helpless to know what best we can do about it and how we can help both the immediate and long term situation. For those wanting to do something, the Guardian’s article How do I offer room to a refugee? offers some pointers on practical options and well as influencing longer term policy change.
With best wishes, Jill
