URGENT REQUEST: Food and donations needed urgently in Calais

Please read and share this update from our partners in Calais, L’Auberge des Migrants, whose work for the refugee crisis includes providing 2000 hot meals a day. Video from Melissa based at the warehouse kitchen (part funded by Help Refugees) below.

The L’Auberge warehouse is running incredibly low on food. We estimate that we are currently delivering food to the Calais and Dunkirk camp enabling 1100 people to cook for themselves, and a supply of food to the Ashram Kitchen who cook for 1000 per day.

The current shortage has occurred mainly because of the festive season but is reaching a critical point and we urgently need cash donations to – https://www.youcaring.com/refugees-in-the-calais-refugee-ca…

In order that we can immediately buy basic items that have run out. If you arriving imminently and can organise a collection of the items listed below this would also be amazingly helpful.

  • Oil
  • Milk
  • Tinned Fish
  • Tinned Beans
  • Tinned Tomatoes
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Onions
  • Flour
  • Tea

We are committed to supporting our brothers and sisters in the camp and continuing to deliver food so that people can rely on a daily supply, but soon we’ll be unable to honor this commitment unless YOU help.

To feed one person per day costs approximately £1. Please help us to continue this vital work and donate here –https://www.youcaring.com/refugees-in-the-calais-refugee-ca…

If you need to contact us about any food donations you are bringing please email – calaiskitchens@gmail.com

Thank you!!

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.

Thank you!
