The migrant camp in Calais, France, nicknamed “the Jungle,” is being demolished and the refugees who lived there are being sent around the country to begin a long resettlement process.
For the last two years, the tents and makeshift shelters that made up this camp were home to thousands of people.
But the migrants can’t carry all their belongings with them as they leave. These are some small pieces of their lives that were left behind.
Hundreds of children lived in the migrant camp and many of their futures remain uncertain. Under an agreement with France, 200 of these children have been accepted by the UK, British Labour MP Caroline Flint told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday.
Before the demolition of the camp began, up to 10,000 migrants lived here.
