He must be really upset with no family.

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.

I know it must be hard for him and the other people, but I also find this Calais jungle place quite fascinating.

Very sad?
It's so unfair ,they have to leave safety because people are fighting or thing are not good were they live.
If your an orphan like Samir then it's so hard because no one can support you or travel with you. The people living in the Calais jungle should be able to leave the camp and get to Britain,especially Samir because he is alone and his uncle is a member of his family but he hasn't got a mum or dad so he needs a family member to help him. Everyone in the Camp should be able to find a home to live in?
