Calais Appeal is a fundraising platform for 7 grassroots organizations helping displaced people in Calais. They recently lost their funding & need to raise £100,000 in 2022 to ensure continuity of services. From tent distribution to food, specialist women's services to firewood & children's play projects. They risk losing 75% of their budgets without urgent support.
Refugee Community Kitchen in Calais is an amazing charity, staffed & supported by volunteers from around the world. Delicious, hot, culturally appropriate meals are freshly prepared and distributed every day to refugees living rough in squalid, inhuman conditions outside Calais and Dunkirk. Their food makes the difference between severe malnutrition & enough strength to survive for refugees.
Care4Calais provide refugees in Calais, Brussels & Paris with vital items such as hoodies, sleeping bags & power banks to name a few. Volunteers are able to go out to the informal settlements where refugees are sleeping rough - to meet them, speak to them personally, hear their stories, and to offer solidarity, humanity & conversation. It's incredibly inspiring.
