Death at Turkey’s Border

We presume that the most dangerous and difficult part of the journey taken refugees is crossing the sea.

The sea from Turkey to Lesvos or from Libya to Italy. Even the sea from Calais to the UK. This is where we hear about the deaths. The boats capsizing, men, women and children drowning…

But what our friends have been telling us more and more often, is the danger of the land crossings. Even leaving war-torn Syria, to cross over into neighbouring Turkey, you must risk your life…

A friend of ours told us he witnessed an old lady being shot dead as he crossed this first border. Others have told us similar horror stories which I felt unable to even process. Maybe it’s the same for you when you hear these stories about our friends…

But here it is, in black and white…

We will be sharing the story of a good friend of ours who went through this horror with his family very soon.
