VOLUNTEER IN CALAIS
Help us directly support more than 1,000 refugees in Northern France.
Help Refugees runs the biggest aid operation in northern France alongside our partners L’Auberge des Migrants, Refugee Youth Service, Refugee Community Kitchen, Utopia56 and Refugee Info Bus, Refugee Women and Children’s Centre and School Bus Project.
Since summer 2015, over 12,000 volunteers have been part of this: doing the work of a big NGO but with a fraction of the budget.
Despite the eviction of the Calais ‘Jungle’ in October 2016 and the Dunkirk/Grande Synthe camp burning down in April 2017, there are still around 1,500 refugees sleeping rough in the forests in northern France. The youngest unaccompanied minor in Calais is currently just nine years old.
We provide blankets, clothes, food and water, Wifi and women and children’s services. To do, this we need more than 80 enthusiastic volunteers every day to help in our warehouse and keep our operations going.
