I cant believe children travel so far on their own - why are thee so many wars all of a sudden and why are governments not doing enough to stop the wars and help the children and their families fleeing them -sick

I have heard a lot about the Calais jungle. I feel so sorry for the people who live there and I hope someday that they will all manage to come to Britain and find a home.
