Fears for refugees as 'door slams shut' following EU-Turkey deal

International children's charity World Vision UK warns that today’s ill-conceived deal for refugees will ‘push the panic button’ among families fleeing from war in Syria, as they make last-ditch attempts to enter Europe -- putting already vulnerable children at further risk of exploitation.

Sarah Pickwick, World Vision UK’s Senior Conflict Adviser, said: “We’re concerned about the deal, but more importantly the uncertainty surrounding how it will be enforced. We fear this could result in a surge towards Europe in the next few days as families see the door is slamming shut.

“Many parents may turn to smugglers as they stop at nothing to find sanctuary for their children – which, tragically, may cost them their lives.

“We urge leaders behind the plan to urgently provide clarity and reassurance about how they will protect children and their families in the next 48 hours.”
