Portugal is to take up to 60 unaccompanied children from Greek refugee camps as concern mounts over the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the vulnerable group.

The children are expected to arrive in Portugal within the next few weeks, but officials did not specify a date. Portugal said it was willing to take in some children as part of a voluntary European scheme to relocate around 1,600.


Can you adopt these children?

It is the forthright of every child to have family and a peaceful home.
Unfortunaitly life is not fair. However, I must say the people who want to shunt these children are the selfopserved, overendulged, sitting in there comfortable homes. Come on people have a heart. These are innocent children we talking about. They have seen more pain and suffering then most of these critics would in a lifetime. Look at those faces and if you can say you don't feel anything, then look inside yourself and find your hearts.
