As if it wasn’t enough that dead babies washed up on European shores forced to flee war stricken countries we have now left people stranded, sleeping in squalid, unsanitary and unsafe conditions in tents, cold refugees camps, old warehouses, squats and in open air. 

'Don’t you get it? You have to understand...
That nobody puts their child on a boat unless the sea is safer than the land.'

Governments not working together and countries imposing new border restrictions and world leaders frankly not caring is causing unnecessary suffering, death and a violation of their human rights.    

This is not a refugee crisis anymore, this is a humanitarian crisis and the biggest crisis since World War II. 

The situation is ever changing but until there is a global solution these people, our brothers and sister need a lifeline. The aid will never be enough but until they are liberated from suffering WE fellow human beings as a duty of care have to provide much needed food, medical aid, clothes/shoes, baby products, vital shelter and sanitation supplies.


Event details

Help me to help them as I cannot do it alone

I am taking a leap of faith by taking a voluntary reduction of hours from my day job, having broken into my savings to buy a house for my own costs, I will spend 6 months travelling around Europe and beyond helping refugees and displaced people wherever the urgent needs are.

Buying a house is no longer important if I can provide temporary homes, comfort, warmth, happiness and dignity to those who have only lost. Help me to help them as I cannot do it alone. All funds raised will go towards necessities for refugees, buying and providing aid. 
I have seen the devastation these people live in having volunteered in refugee camps for over 18 months now. My volunteering journey continues because the humanitarian crisis continues.
