Ireland to take four(4!) unaccompanied minors from Moria camp


Ireland is to take four(4!) unaccompanied minors left homeless following the fire which destroyed large parts of the Moria camp on the Greek island of Lesbos.
The children are expected to arrive here in the coming weeks.

Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman made the announcement this afternoon following what he said was active engagement with Tusla, the Department of Justice, and the Department of Foreign Affairs.

In a statement he said: "Last week, we witnessed the shocking scene of a fire destroying large sections of the Moria migrant camp in Lesbos.

"The fire compounded the incredibly difficult circumstances in which so many people are living."

He added: "I have therefore asked that arrangements be made with Tusla to accelerate the arrival of 4 more unaccompanied children in the coming weeks.".....
