View donation summary


Our organisation provides a range of services in the Calais refugee camp whilst also supporting Dunkirk and other smaller camps.

The donations raised from this page go directly to fund our NFI distribution methods.

We rely solely on donation's which is why when we run out of donated aid we often have to buy the items we need. 

Each NFI department receives a monthly budget which is based on the demands they have at the time.

The page will be updated weekly to allow all of you to get a better insight into the work each team does.

Event details

This week: Hygiene

We have two different ways which we distribute hygiene products; through cold food and personal mobile distribution.

Essential hygiene items get targeted to the entire camp through the cold food team. Their system has developed to make sure they reach everyone in the camp once every seven days. Therefore, in week 1: they will also deliver soap, week 2: toothbrush and toothpaste, week 3: toilet roll.

This system makes sure that the essential items are given to all refugees.

The personal mobile distribution team then follow up and reach people in the camp to deliver extra hygiene products such as mouthwash, razors, conditioner, etc. 

However, we are running incredibly low on these hygiene products. There are times when mobile distribution, are unable to supply the camp with some of these items as we have none in stock. 

In these cases, we then aim to purchase enough to carry on distributing the items.
