This, at least, is better than where I have just been, where I found Afghans sleeping in a ditch. Now there are more than 10 times as many, predominantly Kurds. The average refugee is a young man, it’s true, but there are more and more women and children. They connect them back to where they have come from and to a world they are now locked out of. Thankfully I am here with Doctors of the World (part of the Médecins du Monde Network), one of the Guardian’s refugee appeal charities, which has provided medical help on the ground in Calais since 2003. Cars with British licence plates are around; people smugglers emanating threat.
