Help us directly support more than 1,000 refugees in Northern France

Along with our amazing partners, we run the biggest operation in Northern France – and we’re run entirely by volunteers.


Whether you can give two days, two weeks or two months, we need your help! We are especially looking for long term volunteers who can come out for three months or more.


Please note that the ever-changing situation on the ground means it is not possible for us to accept volunteers applying to start more than 4 months in advance.
