Seven aid organizations wrote a letter to Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP), demanding that Norway take in more refugees from Ukraine.

Norway plans to take in 2,500 Ukrainian refugees from Moldova – that is far from enough, according to Save the Children, Caritas, Fagforbundet, and four other organizations. 

They request that vulnerable children, unaccompanied minor asylum seekers, and people with disabilities be brought to Norway via airlift. They are concerned that children will be exposed to human trafficking.

“We know this (happens based on) other refugee situations, where human traffickers target places where refugees are staying temporarily,” the letter from the aid organizations warned.
