Fire at Refugee Women’s Centre Warehouse in Dunkirk: donate today

The warehouse which Refugee Women’s Centre operate from in Dunkirk, France was unfortunately burnt down on the night of 28th August, and all the stock and storage space has been destroyed.

We are organising an *emergency callout for funds and material donations* to allow us to replenish enough stock to continue supporting those in the area. This includes tents, clothes, hygiene products and activity materials. As the weather grows colder and police clearances are on the rise, families are in increasing need of these items to provide shelter, warmth and basic hygiene.

In order to be able to continue supporting the over 100 family units around the region, they are in urgent need of the following items:

  • Baby diapers (size 5 and 6 greater need)

  • Adult diapers (S,M,L)

  • Women’s and children’s winter clothes especially tracksuits, leggings, waterproof coats and jumpers

  • Women’s, Men’s and children’s trainers/ practical shoes

  • Men’s, women’s and children’s underwear (new or unused)

  • Hygiene items (soap, shampoo, shower gel, baby wipes, toilet paper)

  • Baby accessories (dummies, baby bottles etc)

  • Tents (2-8 person)

  • Blankets

  • Sleeping bags

  • Tarpaulin

  • Games and activities for women and children (pamper/beauty items, board games, crafts materials, colouring books, English books, sports equipment)
