Thirteen aid and refugee agencies say the response from the UK and European governments to the million refugees and migrants who arrived in Europe in 2015 has been inadequate.
‘Successive summits have done little to improve the situation. The deal struck between the EU and Turkey to deport migrants from Greece is the latest callous attempt to shut the door on desperate people who have already fled their homes and risked a treacherous sea crossing’, say the agencies.
They have set out the steps they think the UK needs to take to respond to the crisis in a new report, A Safe Haven?
You can read the statement from the aid and refugee agencies on the Christian Aid website.
