Weʼve raised £365 to Care4Calais to provide direct aid to refugees in France and Belgium. One of the best ways we can help them is to provide ready-made packs.

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.
There are currently around 1,000 refugees sleeping rough in Calais and Dunkirk; another 500 refugees in Brussels; and over 1,500 in Paris. These migrants have no access to even basic sanitation and may not have changed their clothes in weeks. Since the closure of the Calais migrant camps (Calais Jungle), these refugees have no shelter at night or regular food supply, and their health is in shocking decline.
I was in Calais last year as a volunteer to help make a difference to the lives of the many refugees hiding across the streets of this town. I have witnessed the appalling conditions these people are living in, the sense of loneliness and loss they experience, and their fear not knowing what the future will bring.
It is my intention to keep helping them by raising funds to provide daypacks full of essential items including fresh underwear, toiletries, food, basic clothes, which are then distributed by volunteers across France and Belgium.
I strongly believe that every human has the right to be treated in a fair and dignified way, so please help me raising funds to buy these much needed items.
