    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    There are currently over 3000 displaced people camped in makeshift shelters at the british border, surviving in appalling conditions. The situation in Calais is part of a wider migration crisis in Europe - caused largely by the displacement of people from war-torn countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, and Eritrea, and across North Africa.

    There are currently over 3000 displaced people camped in makeshift tents in Calais, surviving in appalling conditions. The governments of France and England have ignored the basic human rights of these people. The media is misrepresenting the issue and spreading fear. Lets come together to provide basic human needs in the camp such as food, medical services, shelter, hygiene and safety, and support those working in the camp.

    From August 12 we will be organising a regular drive from london to calais to deliver donations and work with other organisations on the ground.

    These donations will be spent on basic human needs, food, shelter, medicine and sanitary items, and the transport of donations to calais from London.
