The University of Essex are tackling the refugee crisis head on.
With the conflicts in Iraq and Syria continuing, the refugee crisis is finding itself an issue internationally.
Students from the university in Colchester are currently campaigning to raise money to sponsor refugee students to study at the university.
“We are in the middle of the biggest humanitarian crisis of the 21st century and our government is failing to tackle it properly.
Nevertheless, here at Essex we do not accept the indifference, the ignorance and the injustice endured by those oppressed. We challenge, we fight and are here to change lives.” a quote from the campaign’s website.
They’re mission is for £1 or more donation from every student.
Currently they have raised £3,500 for the Essex Refugee fund.
