Dutch News

Dutch News reports that a group of asylum seekers held at the Almelo refugee centre in the Netherlands have gone to court in the Hague to prevent the government from moving them and the 52 children in the group to another location because the constant movement is damaging the children's education and causing serious psychological concerns. The Almalo Town Council supports the refugees, and some psychologists have expressed concerns that moving the children can compound problems for the children, many of whom have already suffered trauma before arriving in the Netherlands, and who may now be forced to leave trusted therapists and current school systems.
