Trinidadian women and their children who ended up in refugee camps in Syria after their husbands died fighting for ISIS are eating grass to survive. And Trinidadian children are falling victims of racism. Felicia Perkins-Ferreira said in an interview with the Express yesterday, Syrian children are being made to fight Trinidadian children and call them degrading names because of the colour of their skin.
Perkins-Ferreira’s two young sons were kidnapped by their father and taken to Syria five years ago. She travelled to Syria in January this year to rescue her sons from the Roj camp and returned to Trinidad with them. She said she is in constant contact with Trinidadian women who are staying at various refugee camps in Syria.
