The plight of the refugees and the difficulties in Calais has been on my mind for many weeks and I want to dedicate time to help practically with the daily problems on the ground. It's a particularly challenging season and many people are suffering much hardship and hunger with a lack of commitment from government to take responsibility.
The refugee jungle camp is a shanty town holding a mixture of refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants. Conditions at the camp are poor with ineffective shelter and sanitation with more people arriving every day.
The money will be spent on travel(small amount), firewood, medicine, food and to refill gas bottles in France. I will be traveling soon and the funds will be distributed on my arrival and over the week of my stay.
