I have just returned from a trip to Dunkirk where I visited a refugee camp, known as ‘‘The forgotten Jungle’’. Since October 2015 about 3000 refugees including 300 children, mainly Kurds from Iraq, Syria and Iran who have settled into Dunkirk to make the cross over to Britain. These refugees have travelled thousands of kilometres and faced horrific obstacles on their way. People have varied reasons for wishing to come to the United Kingdom but many want to reunite with their family in the UK. The camp is build out of camping tents and due to the constant rainfall the site has turned into one big mud bath. The facilities are extremely minimal and the refugees fully depend on the goodwill of volunteers from all over Europe. I’m still very overwhelmed with the circumstances in the camp. In the next few days I will be sharing stories of the refugees and volunteers of Dunkirk.
