About

While we may complain about the cold, there are thousands of refugees & hundreds of children in the camps of Calais who are struggling to stay warm. These people have escaped horrific circumstances, risking their lives to get to Europe in the hope of a better life. They are keen to get to the UK because they have family and friends here, but the British government is only accepting an astonishingly low number of refugees. Now, the French government has decided to evict 2000 people in the camp and the fate of these people remains unknown. Now more than ever, they need all the help they can get.

Event details

Please Support our fund-raiser!

We, Alaa, Karlijn & Tamsyn, are driving to Calais end of February to volunteer at the refugee camp. We will spend 3 days there sorting donations & distributing aid. We realise that we will only be making a small difference in these days and therefore we would like to increase the impact of our trip by asking you for your donations to Help Refugees, which is one of the most active charities in Calais. Your donations will directly go to the people who need it as we will fund the costs of the trip ourselves. Please help us raise more money by sharing this page with your friends & family! Thank you! Alaa, Tamsyn & Karlijn
