Charity Collecting Baby Carriers to send to Refugees in Europe

Migrants and refugees try to keep themselves warm with blankets, after the boat on which they crossed a part of the Aegean sea from Turkey hit on rocks, on the Greek island of Lesbos, on Saturday, Dec. 12, 2015. Any link between extremism and the thousands of people fleeing violence in Syria and elsewhere is false, a top European human rights official said Friday, noting that those who have perpetrated recent attacks in Europe were citizens of European countries.(AP Photo/Santi Palacios)
