Refugee Council: Email your MP to vote in support of Syria’s vulnerable refugees

Refugee Council is appealing to you to urgently ask your MP to vote in support of Syria’s most vulnerable refugees.

The conflict in Syria has produced more than 2.3 million refugees. It's the fastest outflow of refugees from a country since the Rwandan genocide.

Unfortunately the UK has refused to resettle a single Syrian refugee.

Prime Minister David Cameron has indicated he was willing to look at the possibility of offering protection to some of Syria’s most vulnerable refugees.

The parliament will vote on the issue on Wednesday 29th January.

“We need you to ensure your MP votes for the UK to take part in the UN’s global resettlement programme for refugees fleeing Syria,” says Maurice Wren, Refugee Council Chief Executive. “The vast majority of refugees are being hosted by a small number of Syria’s neighbouring countries, who are struggling to cope. Conditions are harsh and worsening; people are shivering through another freezing winter with food, fuel and water in short supply.”
