Help4Refugee Children (H4RC) is an independent grassroots humanitarian organisation created in October 2015, following several visits to Dunkirk and Calais Refugee to deliver humanitarian aid.
During these visits, we grew extremely concerned about the conditions in which children and families are living in refugee camps, with little access to essential sanitary facilities, education, and support.
Aware of the psychological traumas that the children were suffering, as well as the visibly difficult and dire conditions in which they lived made worse by the winter; we were so heartbroken to meet babies as young as few weeks old that we knew we had to go back, we knew we could not go home and ignore what is happening and continues to happen just two hours away from our doorstep.
So we returned, time and after time and never looked back. For two years now, we have been building engagement with refugees focusing on families, young children and unaccompanied minors by running various creative arts workshops - the benefits of these workshops are: teaching basic English, developing confidence, fun and engaging team building helping children develop trust and maintaining hope during this difficult situation by helping to reduce stress and improve mental health.
During three years, our work continued to encompass a number of four important aspects.
1. Delivering humanitarian aid to refugee camps and illegal settlements
2. Carrying out creative art workshops with children and their families
3. Supporting families on their arrival to the UK and continue to build engagement
4. Advocating for the rights of refugees here in the UK and raise awareness
We do this because less than two hours away from the comfort of our home, there are people who have fled war, severe deprivation, and terrorism; who are desperate for a chance to rebuild their lives and not enough is being done to help them.
Today, we are no longer traveling to France, any funds donated will go towards supporting our partners in their work in the front line, directly supporting refugee children. For more information on our partners, please visit
