Despite all the challenges going on in the Camps in Calais and Dunkirk this week, we have been able to keep going due to the amazing support of many individuals.

Help Refugees is a big supporter of the kitchens and and food operations in the warehouse. With their help and support we have been able to keep the hot meals and food parcels going all week. Together we are feeding more than five thousand people every day.

We couldn’t do it without your support.
Just this week next to many individuals donations 4 vans full of fruit and vegetables were sent to the warehouse.
We bought 6000 tins of fish
4 pallets of teabags.
Thousand of nutritious bars
Lots of water bottles and Tina and her team made 1000’s of emergency food packs, ready for whatever action the police decides to take in the next few weeks
And the mountain of rice is never ending
All the kitchens kept producing high quality food, hundreds and thousands of meals every day.

We would not be able to do our work without your support and kindness. Many of the refugees we help are fleeing the conflict zones of Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. Others are trying to escape political oppression in countries like Eritrea. All are human beings like us. As well as providing immediate physical assistance, we want to help refugees maintain their dignity.
