Deputy chief executive Kassim Tokan claimed that 95 to 97 per cent of the camp’s migrants are men
The Human Relief Foundation (HRF) has been giving aid to the migrant camp with the belief that its occupants are fleeing war-torn countries like Syria.
However, the charity decided to pull the plug after its deputy chief executive Kassim Tokan recently paid a visit to Calais.
I thought they have valid reason, but most of them they haven’t any valid reason
The shocked deputy claimed he discovered unwanted clothing and food “being dumped and burnt” by migrants.
Mr Tokan said: “I thought they have valid reason, but most of them they haven’t any valid reason… they want to go [to the UK] to get money, a better economic situation.”
Thousands of migrants have arrived in Calais to claim asylum in Britain
Mr Tokan said he saw migrants burning unwanted food and clothes
He also said that 95 to 97 per cent of migrants in the camp were young, fit men – some of whom allegedly told him they were happy to stay in the camp.
Mr Tokan added the HRF will now turn its attention to helping Syrians trapped in neighbouring Labanon and Jordan, claiming migrants at Calais no longer need the help.
The camp even has its own shop
He told ITV: “They have enough food, they have enough clothes and we have seen clothes everywhere thrown.
“I think we need to find other places. These people come from certain countries, which are safe, everything is there, they can work, but I don’t know why they came here.”
