About the project

A group of local folks came together horrified by the images and news continuing to fill our screens, 'papers and airwaves surroundng the refugee crisis throughout Europe.  Unsure of how we could help, initially our aim was to gather essential items and have them shipped to Hungary, as a result of overwhelming donations and the ever changing nature of the crisis we are now in possession of goods enough for different camps with their different needs.  Calais for example is 'housing' mostly young men whose needs differ from the families in Hungary, but we have been inundated with donations that would meet both of their needs.  We aim to deliver the goods by van while working alongside aid agencies and are looking to secure monies enough to pay for van hire and fuel to make the trips ourselves when and where the need is greatest, in order to bring some relief to those suffering more than enough already.
