    What is crowdfunding?

    Story

    The eviction order of the Jungle in Calais is going ahead. It includes most of the shelters where women and children live. Liz, a very dedicated ex fire fighter currently caring for the children in the camp, needs a double decker. The bus will be refitted - a dormitory on the top deck and a living area downstairs for mothers and children. + a heating system. Cost: £9000
    We reached this target but there are new urgent needs due to recent events : Fire extinguishers, sleeping bags etc. THANK YOU

      We are going to Calais on Friday to take pictures of the bus to show you what you made possible.THANK YOU. We will also bring emergency supplies such as fire extinguishers, emergency blankets and shoes. Calais became a war zone. All extra money will go for the refugees.
