We are an independent grassroots organisation based in London. Our work encompasses a number of four important aspects.
- We deliver humanitarian aid to refugee camps and illegal settlements
- We carry out creative art workshops with children and their families
- Support families on their arrival to the UK and continue to build engagement
- We advocate for the rights of refugees here in the UK and raise awareness
We do this because less than two hours away from the comfort of our home, there are people who have fled war, severe deprivation, and terrorism; who are desperate for a chance to rebuild their lives and not enough is being done to help them.
There are currently around 1,000 refugees in Calais and Dunkirk sleeping rough; these harrowing figures also include many families with young children. These are people who in these conditions have no access to basic sanitation and may not have changed their clothes in weeks, leading to skin disease and similar problems.
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. The refugee crisis in Europe is the biggest challenge of our generation. Governments do not recognise this as a humanitarian crisis, but your charity can.
