raised of £5,000 target by 30 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,177 to enable the continuation of Mobile Refugee Support's operations in northern France over the winter months.

    Funded on Saturday, 31st March 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    With winter finally settling in and the coldest months being dead ahead of us, the refugees we support are in dire need of very specific items. Tents and tarpaulin sheeting for shelters and the production of ‘basha’ kits; waterproof clothing and ponchos; thermal sleeping bags; warm and essential clothing such as jackets, pants, socks, hats and gloves; high-energy dried foods and of course torches for these long, dark days are needed now more than ever. These are just a few of the main items we are asked for on a daily basis.

    The intention of this appeal is to enable us to purchase these necessary items that we lack or do not get donated directly. There are certain items we are in need of a constant supply of, but of course not everyone can donate these. Our teams, of both long and short term volunteers are onsite every-day and see first-hand the inhumane and distressing conditions in which so many people are forced to live.

    The money raised from this appeal will go directly to helping us buy these life-saving and weatherproof items that can make this existence a little more bearable. Every penny makes a difference and any amount donated will be truly appreciated.

    We cannot thank you enough for your support, we depend on it to be able to continue to the work we do. As always, if you would like to volunteer or be involved somehow, get in contact for more information.

        Hope this helps. Still trying to see when I can come to volunteer, but this is what I have raised so far plus some from my savings.
