Refugees ‘strug­gling’

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

REFUGEES are strug­gling to in­te­grate into Bri­tish life be­cause of re­stric­tions on bring­ing their rel­a­tives to the coun­try, cam­paign­ers claim.

Ox­fam and the Refugee Coun­cil called on the UK Gov­ern­ment to amend the rules, la­belling them “un­fair” and “re­stric­tive”.

The or­gan­i­sa­tions said many refugees are plagued by worry about loved ones who are still over­seas — leav­ing them un­able to fo­cus on find­ing work, mak­ing friends or learn­ing English.
