A 10-YEAR-OLD girl is begging David Cameron to let her disabled Syrian grandfather into Britain for Christmas.
In her heartbreaking letter pleading with the Prime Minister, Shakira Damous said: “I miss the way he used to pick me up and hug me.”
Her grandfather, Abdulkarim Damous, had been living in Syria when he was forced out of his home by sick Islamic State jihadis.
He fled to Turkey, where he now lives in a park after being separated from his family – and all Shakira wants is to be able to bring him to safety.
The girl, from Devon, said: “He doesn’t deserve to be living in a park. He is 75 years old and blind in one eye, and he is also disabled.
“The only thing I want for christmas is for my Grandad to come to England.
Mr Damous’ sons both live in Exeter and have been British citizens for 10 years.
They have been battling to bring their father to the UK, but so far they have been refused a visa for their father three times.
Shakira said: “I just want to know that he is safe each night. I don’t understand why he can’t come to England and see me again.
“I feel a bit guilty because we can’t bring him here and I feel helpless as well because we can’t do anything to bring him here. We can only ask.”
A Downing Street spokesman said they were “considering” her message.
