Jungle Kids’ Café in the refugee camp in Calais,

Appeal from Alan Gibbons, children’s author

Emergency Appeal:

Following our letter in the Guardian, https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/aug/08/calais-cafe-closure-puts-children-in-peril  about the eviction of the Jungle Kids’ Café in the refugee camp in Calais, there will be a lobby and teach in of the French embassy, calling for both the French and UK govenments to enforce the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Please do your best to support:Friday, 12th August 6pm

French embassy.

“There are seven hundred children in the Jungle camp in Calais. 78% are alone. This is a basic humanitarian issue. Vulnerable children are lonely, hungry and could become victims of trafficking if they are abandoned. The eviction of children from the Jungle Kids’ Café could be catastrophic for these children. The French and UK governments have a duty to enforce the United Nations Convention On the Rights of the Child. No human being is illegal, least of all children.”
