Safe Passage letter gaining momentum

by Michael Ford last modified 26 Jun, 2020 10:36 PM

A joint letter calling for Safe Passage for child refugees has now been signed by over 250 faith leaders.

Our Bishops added their signatures to last week's Safe Passage open letters that call upon our Prime Minister to offer sanctuary to unaccompanied children stranded in Europe.

The letters sent by Safe Passage in Wiltshire, signed by Bishop Nicholas and Bishop Andrew - and Safe Passage in Dorset, signed by Bishop Karen - explain more than 1,600 unaccompanied children remain stuck on the Greek islands.

The letter comes as the UNHCR published their Global Trends Report, which has stated that an unprecedented 79.5 MILLION PEOPLE were displaced as of the end of 2019, with nearly half of the those forcibly displaced being children.
