Jamie, a 10 year old British citizen, is shut away in a children’s centre on the edge of the desert near Dubai, UAE.
Following a two week holiday in Dubai where his father works, Jamie steadfastly refused to return to his mother in France, citing the fear of a mentally and physically abusive environment. Jamie is desperate to stay with his loving British Dad, in their safe and familiar environment.
Jamie is not allowed to see the family and friends that love him. He is in a life-threatening situation and desperately needs the help and support of us all.
He has said that when he goes to sleep, he wishes he doesn't wake up. He has also said on several occasions that he will kill himself if he is forced to return to his mother.
Jamie is under a great deal of stress, and urgently needs his voice to be heard. We need to get him released from the children's centre back to the secure and loving environment of life with his Dad. He will need the correct and caring counselling to help him overcome these desperate traumas.
His human rights have been comprehensively violated because of the French authorities. Jamie's voice must be heard - they have never listened to him. His wishes and his safety are paramount. We cannot bear him being alone, away from the people that love him. We are desperate to get him released and get him the help he so desperately needs.
Jamie is having to endure more than most adults would be able to cope with. His physical health has deteriorated considerably due to the stress, and his mental health is fading. We are all desperately worried for his safety and his life.
Please donate whatever you can to help us get Jamie's voice heard, his concerns, needs & wishes listened to. We also hope to get the specialist help & support Jamie will need going forwards to help him recover from an appalling life-changing episode.
Thank you so much for your support.

Just what the hell do the authorities and the mother think they are doing?!

James is totally isolated with no friends or family. Why aren’t the British government doing anything? The French seem to be treating James like a possession not a child!

A heartbreaking story. Poor kid.

This should not be happening. Chin up Jamie. This should not be happening. There are a lot of questions to be answered by the French.

How long will it be until someone actually listens to Jamie? He has to wait until he is 16?! This is madness.

Poor Jamie. Such a difficult story. I hope it works out for him as he wants - he has been through enough now.
