Help4Refugee Children (H4RC) is an independent grass roots humanitarian organisation created in October 2015, following several visits to Dunkirk and Calais Refugee to deliver humanitarian aid.
During these visits we grew extremely concerned about the conditions in which children and families are living in refugee camps, with little access to essential sanitary facilities, education and support.
Aware of the psychological traumas that the children were suffering, as well as the visibly difficult and dire conditions in which they lived made worse by the winter; we were so heartbroken to meet babies as young as few weeks old that we knew we had to go back, we knew we could not go home and ignore what is happening and continues to happen just two hours away from our doorstep.
So we returned, time and after time and never looked back. For two years now, we have been building engagement with refugees focusing on families, young children and unaccompanied minors by running various creative arts workshops – the benefits of these workshops are: teaching basic English, developing confidence, fun and engaging team building helping children develop trust and maintaining hope during this difficult situation by helping to reduce stress and improve mental health.
Your funds will help us provide the following:
Baby Boxes with essentials for babies and toddlers
Social integration projects on arrival to the UK
Books to learn English & French
Phone credit for minors and families so that they can keep in touch with their loved ones
