From Thanet to Calais

Jordan Williams shows us that compassion is alive and well in Thanet.

For months I have tried to put into words my experience and time spent in Calais. Even now I cannot truly express what I have seen and also learnt from everything Iíve experienced since the summer of 2015.

It all began back in the Summer of 2015 when the media started show daily coverage of the refugee crisis happening across Europe and right on within arms reach in Calais, which on a clear day I can say of the coast of Ramsgate, my home town. It dawned on me proactive action was needed and if the government was not going to proactively help then I should at least try and do whatever I could.

Jordan Williams, Lib Dem Candidate for Newington, writes about his time in Calais.
