UK Charity Pulls ‘Refugee’ Camp Funding After Migrants BURN Food and Clothing Donations
The Human Relief Foundation, a British charity, pulled funding from the Calais, France refugee camp after they found migrants burning food and clothing donations.
The police were trying to clear migrants from an unauthorized area.
The Human Relief Foundation (HRF) has been giving aid to the migrant camp with the belief that its occupants are fleeing war-torn countries like Syria.
However, the charity decided to pull the plug after its deputy chief executive Kassim Tokan recently paid a visit to Calais.
The shocked deputy claimed he discovered unwanted clothing and food “being dumped and burnt” by migrants.
Mr Tokan said: “I thought they have valid reason, but most of them they haven’t any valid reason… they want to go [to the UK] to get money, a better economic situation.”
He also said that 95 to 97 per cent of migrants in the camp were young, fit men – some of whom allegedly told him they were happy to stay in the camp.
Mr Tokan added the HRF will now turn its attention to helping Syrians trapped in neighbouring Labanon and Jordan, claiming migrants at Calais no longer need the help.
