In Paris, despite promises from President Macron to get refugees “off the streets, out of the woods” by the end of 2017, large numbers of displaced people remain on the streets in freezing temperatures with little to no access to appropriate sanitation facilities. This includes large numbers of people who have claimed asylum in France, and amongst them unaccompanied minors.
