Do not deport Wadih Chourey Back to Lebanon just because his parents have died

Do not deport Wadih Chourey Back to Lebanon just because his parents have died | Welfare, Disability, Politics and People's Right's | Scoop.it
Wadih came to the United Kingdom in 1997 because his life was in danger from the various gangs operating in Beirut who were victimising him because of his Down's syndrome.

He has lived in Twickenham, London, since his arrival and was looked after by his parents and is now being looked after by his brother. He cannot cook and needs help with washing and dressing himself.

His life would be in danger on two counts: firstly he will not be able to look after himself and secondly from violence.
