Over the last weeks and months we've heard horrific stories from Calais, with ordinary people taking extraordinary steps to flee the violence and terrors in Syria. Today, in some newspapers we've seen the terrible consequences of the inaction the UK Government so far. Now, more than ever before, is the time to act.
So we, along with so many across Scotland and the whole UK, want to show that we stand shoulder to shoulder with those who seek to live in safety. We support the calls, made from people across the political-spectrum, to offer refuge to those in this desperate situation. We hope the Government listens, and does the right, moral and human thing.
In the meantime, however, there is a massive humanitarian crisis, and people need our help urgently. So we ask you to please donate anything you can here to offer support directly to the refugees and, if you have anything physical items that can provide shelter, sustenance and warmth to those in need, you can get in touch with the organisation on facebook.
