Saturday 2 September marks two years since the death of Alan Kurdi, the Syrian toddler who drowned in 2015 in the Mediterranean Sea and subsequently made global headlines revealing the plight of refugees.
Commenting Liberal Democrat MP Tim Farron said:
“Two years since the horrific death of a little boy awakened the world to a catasprohic refugee crisis, and the UK has continued to turn its back on those in desperate need.
“Thousands have died again this year drowning in the Mediterranean, tens of thousands of unaccompanied children remain stuck in unofficial, squalid camps across Europe, and millions are still displaced from Syria and beyond, with little chance of returning soon.
“The Conservatives simply do not care. Instead of embracing Britain’s proud history of helping refugees, they are happy to ignore the suffering all around us.
“On this most tragic of anniversaries, Liberal Democrats are urging Theresa May to step up efforts to take more unaccompanied child refugees, and to pass Baroness Hamwee’s Private Members Bill to expedite family reunion rules.”
