Help refugee children find safety

Right now, there are at least 25,000 unaccompanied children seeking refuge in Europe! They’ve fled unimaginable violence, lost their parents, and are desperate to find safe haven. But instead of urgently offering them sanctuary, authorities have abandoned them to dangerous traffickers that stalk them.

The craziest thing is that even children with relations in Europe are not being allowed to join them.

But this week everything changed -- refugee experts have just won a legal case requiring the UK to let unaccompanied kids join their families in Britain and claim asylum there.

Avaaz has teamed up with the experts to use this case as a precedent and roll out a campaign to identify these children, and win urgent legal assistance, counselling and shelter for kids across the EU. But the campaign needs urgent funding, or they may still fall prey to the smugglers.

If enough of us donate just a small amount, we can help save these most vulnerable of victims from more trauma, and do our part to break the child smuggling trade.

In a civilised, humane world, no child would face this terror. Let's help build that world today. Donate now to urgently launch a plan to stop these tragedies.
