There are over 5 million orphans in Iraq alone! This statistic is over 3years old!
The recent persecution of minorities by ISIS has led to a new wave of refugees into Turkey. It is estimated that of the 500,000+ refugees there are at least 10,000 orphans!
If they can escape further persecution then they face a desperate existence, With no one to care for them!
The Spanish government have already agreed to save 100 children from this tragedy partnering with World in Harmony and have the procedures in place to extract these children.
Ireland must do something to concrete to answer this tragedy, especially now that a way has been made.
The reason I’m getting involved is I’m a father myself and I can’t imagine how anyone would ignore my kids if I were gone!
Ireland, is the country it is, based on what is important to us as individuals! I know we are a nation of decent people who at the end of the day want the right thing to be done!
This is our chance to be the Schindlers of our age!
Please sign so that as a nation we can do something great!
We the undersigned call on the Minister for Justice to follow the example set by the Spanish Government and take steps to rescue some of the Child Orphans of Iraq/Syria.
