RWC emergency support callout!

The Refugee Women's Centre is in urgent need of support!

On 28 August the warehouse which we operate from in Grande Synthe was burnt down, and all the stock and storage space was destroyed. Local organisations, including the Women's Centre, rely on this stock to provide basic aid to the roughly 700 men, women and children still living outside in the Dunkirk area.

In order to be able to continue supporting the over 100 family units around the region, we need to replace our high-need items as fast as possible.  As the weather begins to turn, and police clearances increase, old and new families alike rely on the Women's Centre for shelter, bedding, clothes and hygiene items.

Please donate to help RWC re-stock our most needed items and continue supporting refugee families across northern France.

£20 buys a warm sleeping bag
£17 buys a tent
£15 buys a pack of 90 nappies
£5 buys a pair of women's leggings
£2 buys a 2 pack of dummies

Thank you for your continued support!

The Refugee Women's Centre is a women for women organisation based in Dunkirk, France. Our small team of volunteers provide daily psychosocial support, material aid and information services to women and family units living in informal refugee settlements across northern France. 

We rely entirely on donated funds and goods to carry out our work and meet the needs of those we support. All money raised from this fundraiser will be spent on purchasing items that were lost in the warehouse fire, from bedding to clothing to activity material.
