Charity to stop providing aid to illegal immigrants in Calais

The Human Relief Foundation charity is expected to stop providing aid to the illegal immigrant camp in Calais after its chief executive paid a visit and found that 95-97% of the illegal immigrants there were male economic migrants.

HRF has been providing food and clothes for families to the camp in Calais but chief executive Kassim Tokan found that the unneeded clothing for women and children was discarded or burnt and unwanted food was dumped. He said that the illegal immigrants are mainly interested in getting hold of cash and mobile phones and that HRF would now probably refocus on helping to build shower blocks and toilets rather than providing aid.
