Paris Refugee Ground Support

£15,543 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 238 people in 7 months

We are a small mobile distribution and coordination team and our Transit Van is both our home and our workplace!

We live this way to try and keep our costs to a minimum which is often a struggle as we are in one of THE most expensive cities.

The van is our essential tool that allows us to reach out to large numbers of displaced people from Afghanistan, Iran, the Sudan, Eritrea and north Africa that are left totally alone to brave the Paris streets.

We coordinate donations from the UK and Europe and we distribute essential aid to people surviving the brutality of inner city street life.

People live, if they're lucky, in a small tent on the side of traffic heavy main roads, not knowing how soon it is likely to be taken away by the authorities AGAIN. AND AGAIN. AND AGAIN.
How must it feel having to rely on food donations and water handouts, how degrading must it be having to position bins on a busy street just to have a modicum of privacy to strip off and wash, having to use portaloos that are overflowing and gut wrenchingly foul.

The autumn is here and winter will soon be upon us. This is the hardest time for everyone. It's freezing cold, wet, dark and very often dangerous. It's tough living in the extreme.

Our goal is simple !

We will provide as much humanitarian aid and comfort to those living in these appalling and hopeless situations.

We work with dignity, with passion and with determination.

We try and remember who needs what and where we will be able to find them the next day.

We liaise with other like-minded groups to offer maximum support.

The media may have forgotten what is happening but the reality remains desperate.

Whatever you can give will go towards making a difference for those with no choice other than to keep on going in this harsh and unjust situation.

We can never thank you enough for choosing to support our efforts in Paris.

Much love PRGS
