With ongoing bombardment in and around Damascus and countless people trapped in besieged areas throughout Syria, Christian Aid has asked world leaders to act now to end the horrors, and reaffirms its call for an immediate and lasting ceasefire.
The Dubs amendment was passed in May 2016 at the height of the European refugee crisis and was supposed to ensure that 3,000 lone children were given protection in the UK. The Government has announced the scheme will close after only relocating 350 children.

Commenting on the Department for International Development’s new strategy for economic development, Christian Aid has welcomed its focus on beyond-aid issues such as tax and transparency and its attention to the whole economy, and called on the rest of the government to work together to support genuinely sustainable development.
