Weʼre raising £800 to Help Friendship Across Borders fund essentials and friendship visits for refugee women locked in Derwentside Detention Centre.

Don't have time to donate right now?


Many of the women held at Derwentside Immigration Removal Centre have already lived through horrific experiences such as torture and rape on their journey to safety, only to be locked in detention, their children taken from them, their phones removed! The majority (92% in 2019) eventually are freed to seek asylum. We aim to offer them friendship and practical support during their time in detention.

    Thank you for your support, so far we can buy 5 phone cards so that the women can phone family members or legal advice.

    We are so saddened at the way our country treats asylum seekers and refugees. We will remember the women in Derwentside IRC and those taking practical steps to help them in our prayers. God Bless You

    Solidarity to all supporting the campaign to LET HER FREE and shame on our Government for treating women seeking sanctuary so appallingly.

    This is appalling that these poor women are even being put onto yet another Detention Centre. They have been through so much already. It really breaks my heart.
