Help for refugee children

2015-12-09 06:00

AS the migrant crisis continues, the letter I write is not only a tribute to the child refugee Aylan Kurdi, but to all young children caught in this peril, not only because of the loss of life, but the loss of the future of these children living out this crisis.

This extends beyond hunger. It is a loss of their education, their dreams and hopes of their future. In a sense, like Aylan, they have lost their lives.

I feel it is for all countries to help in any way, be it small, in this unprecedented crisis with regard to their education.
