Please ask your MP to sign this EDM
That this House is aware of UN estimates that approximately 17,000 children in our world are forced to flee their homes everyday due to wars, in the process experiencing haphazard and dangerous refuge, often having to miss out on their schooling, social welfare and health needs;

believes that those minors who are forced to flee from such situations should as a priority be quickly found safe accommodation in which they can be protected from harm and exploitation until they are reunited with their families; and calls on the Government to support the worldwide action plan for such children which would mobilise sufficient funds to guarantee the education and safety for all children in such war displacement, to help and not ignore their severe plight.  
Date tabled: 05.09.2016
