This is Mawda.
She is two years old and was living in the refugee camp in Dunkirk with her parents and three year old brother.
On Thursday she was shot in the face after Belgian police opened fire on a van she was travelling in with her family.
Her mother screamed for help but it is said that Mawda died at the scene.
The worst part is that police initially denied that she had been shot…suggesting instead that she had been taken ill or died as a result of erratic driving.
They still refuse to admit that the bullet was a police bullet, and her parents are scared that her death will be covered up and no-one held accountable.
That’s why we must share this story and continue to understand what is happening to the most vulnerable people of our world…even once they make it to a ‘safe’ country.
Mawda lived in a refugee camp not suitable for animals, in conditions you wouldn’t wish upon anybody, let alone families, women, children, babies who have fled war.
What are we doing?
How is this happening?
It’s too much.
Something has to change.
