Birmingham is suffering a “homeless epidemic”. Charity organisations are trying to bridge the gap. As-suffa Institute, an Islamic voluntary community organisation, part of the Birmingham Food Drive, provides a hot meal (biryani) and a friendly environment for homeless and vunerable people.

Calais Migrants Last Supper

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Calais migrants living in bitter conditions queue for the last food provided by Salam. French authorities have instructed the charity to stop distributing food on the street with threats the police will enforce the order. The refugees, fleeing poverty and war in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Eritrea and Sudan are living rough in the “jungle” because they were pushed out of the town centre by the police. A new “Sangatte” centre has been opened but it is viewed with suspicion by the refugees and is in a remote area, far from the centre of Calais.
