Stoves for refugees in Duinkerke

€1,054 of €2,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 28 months
This friday feb. the 19th  I'll go to the refugee camp in Dunkirk France again, also known as' the jungle from hell." I'm going with a construction team and we plan to make regular  trips to the camp to install stoves in family-tents.
This whole winter there was a lack of strong canvas tents that can be heated. 
The police wouldn't allow such tents or any other building materials onto the site. In order to discourage the further groth of the camp the 3000 people already  there were forced to live in very harsh muddy winter conditions.
-Even though the French government has had serious warnings from the UN,  Amnesty International, etc.
Since the police keeps blocking any steady supply of the most needed materials there's a desparate need of screws, nails, glue, tie wraps, chimney-pipes, power (ie generators, cables etc) etc.



.  It would be great if we can show up with a large stock of whatever is needed so we can work, and leave the rest there -and rent a power generator, and cover gasoline costs. Donations are VERY WELCOME !!  it's very appreciated by the war-victims that now have to live in these inhumane conditions....

Dearest Sponsors!
Today we leave for Duinkerke with a truck full of pallets, construction materials and tools, and with a nice amount of... money!! Thank you all so much for what you could spare, for it enables us to buy exactly what is needed for our work: the installation of 6 burners in family - tents. The situation in the camp has gone from bad to inhumane since the last 2 weeks of heavy rain. Trails through camp are just mud pools and the tents are flooded, making it impossible to dry clothes and beds. With the installation of a burner the situation inside the tent becomes manageable: a dry 'home' prevents diseases and makes life on site a little more humane. 6 burners is just a fraction of the total need, the scale of the drama is overwhelming. But we're very happy to be able to do Something. With your support! Thanks again and we keep you posted. Ciao Menno
The burners are made from old gas - bottles on the site. Beauties!
