The refugee crisis After months of growing problems and a tragic number of deaths the world has noticed the millions of refugees scattered across the Middle East Eastern Europe and North Africa. They are peoples of several nations and many are fleeing the most horrendous conditions, they are running from hatred war death and destruction. The numbers of refugees are in the millions many are Syrians fleeing the civil war and rise is IS others fleeing the breakdown of Libya wars in Sudan and there are some trying to escape crushing poverty in countries like Gambia and Eritrea. Now the question is what's the response to this ? Are countries doing enough ? Europe is dividing over the issue some wanting to do more others avoiding doing the bare minimum. Some countries are pouring millions into aid in the region helping turkey and Lebanon with the nearly two million refugees they have already. Others despite pouring money and weapons into the wars aren't offering any help for the people displaced. Where does our morality and charity stop ? What's the acceptable levels of death before people think it's enough ? Should more be done to assist the people in the area or should they be helped to escape to new lives ? Is there a solution that isn't going to involve yet more small bodies on the waters edge ?
