The tragic and profoundly inhumane situation faced by refugees across Europe must end. We cannot stand by and watch this crisis unfold while children’s bodies wash up on the shores of the Mediterranean. Saving lives must be the first priority for Irish and EU migration policy.

The intensification of violence and conflicts worldwide, particularly in countries like Syria, South Sudan and the Central African Republic, has driven people to take extreme and often fatal risks in a desperate attempt to escape the horrors of their war torn homes.

Europe is still failing to decide on an appropriate, human rights-based response to this crisis. The consequences of continued inaction in the face of this crisis will be far reaching and tragic. We know Ireland is making an effort but that effort must be increased with urgency.

Ireland must play a leading role in providing immediate safety and shelter to those who have risked their lives seeking protection. We must act now to show our solidarity with people desperately fleeing for their lives.

After taking this action we will keep you up to date with Oxfam's activities. (You can unsubscribe at any time.)
