Supplies to Calais and Dunkirk

We are Nisha, Celia and Juliet raising funds for a trip to Calais and Dunkirk at the beginning of December. Nisha's already made the trip on a number of occasions and help is always needed. We're working with people on the ground in the camps and responding to what is required at present.

Thousands of people are living in tents and makeshift shelters and as the weather worsens the need for warmth and shelter only increases.

We want to continue the work done by many in taking vital supplies to those living in refugee camps. People need food, tents, warm blankets, sleeping bags and coats.


We need £4000 to spend on food and essential resources.
 We will buy food locally in France to save costs. Sofinee, who runs the kitchen in Calais feeds around 1000 people per day and can't afford to run out of supplies.

We want to use some of the money to contribute to the purchase of a van for volunteers on the ground in Dunkirk camp. They are relying on a small car to transport supplies into the camp and have to do many journeys each day to deliver vital aid to residents.

We are planning to help fund a respite caravan for residents in Calais camp. The caravan will house young people who are feeling unwell so they have somewhere warm and dry to get better before returning to their tents. This caravan will be run by Sofinee and she will help care for the sick people. 

We have collected sleeping bags, tents, blankets and coats which we will deliver to the camps.

Dunkirk in particular needs assistance, there is not the same level of support in place there. Currently there are around 1000 people living in the camp there, many families and young children. 

The current political climate in Europe means that now, more than ever, it is vital that we maintain support and solidarity with those suffering awful living conditions in these refugee camps. 

The trip is planned for the 4th-6th December so any donations, as soon as possible, would be gratefully received. 

Thank you!
