Helping Refugees Rebuild Their Life

£2,300 of £4,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 33 months


Several of us went to Calais on the 4th and 5th of February.  We took two vans full of warm clothes, tents, sleeping bags and boots to the camps. I saw where the aid went and I can vouch for the fact it was greatly appreciated.

We would like to continue helping and have now focused attention on the UK.  A lot of the refugees are making their way to Birmingham and are in temporary accomodation awaiting news on what will happen next on their journey.

We have used late donataions to help clothe and feed these people and have also collected toys for the children . 

These people have had horrific journies - one lady I have recently spoken to told me how her husbnad was beheaded and her children killed. She is now in the UK alone and speaks no English - as you can imagine she is terrified and extrememly low.

We are asking for donations which will go towards buying clothes, toiletries, food and toys for those in Birmingham. We are also trying to find people who are locals that speak arabic, kurdish etc to befriend some of the more vulnerable people who are feeling very alone.

Any donation is so greatly appreciated!!

Thank you xx

Thank you so much to everyone that has donated! We are around the 2k mark counting the private donations, which is amazing! Thank you to those who have donated clothes too., they'll be greatly received. We have just over a week left before we'll use the money to buy the most needed items so please spread the word! It's so cold in the camps now and nobody should be living in these conditions in 2016! We can't solve the problem but we can help keep these families warm ❤️

Hi Guys, a group of us are planning a trip to Calais to help the refugees in the camps. We are taking a van and two cars which we hope to fill with essentials that will help the families out there keep warm. Please check out our Go Fund Me page for details on how to help us. Any donations will be greatly appreciated and will make a big difference. Thank you and thank you to our lovely friend Kerry for organising this after spending time in the camps volunteering.
