HALF WAY THERE THANK YOU!!! 20 days left to bump it up and make a real difference. Thanks to ALL of you who have contributed but we need more...the situation is urgent and desperate.xxxx
Winter weather, we all hate it, battering storms and dark cold wet days and nights. Just imagine sheltering in a flimsy tent with gales howling around you trying to keep a family warm and safe. Living near to Calais I have become acutely aware of the desparate situation there where every day desparate people are arriving with nothing but the clothes on their back.
They need our help.
More so than ever with a harsh northern winter on its way.
Many people have been volunteering to help sort and organise the wonderful donations that have been coming in. But shelters are in desparate URGENT need and the building materials to build them.
Strong material to make waterproof shelters is in great demand and very short supply. . there is a real and urgent need for as much material as possible. I have access to agricultural grade plastic sheeting. It is 12 meters wide and 30 meters on a roll. But it is not cheep...100euros + a roll.
I'd love to buy one at least...two would be fantastic, more than that would be beyond my dreams! Lets help keep some extremely vunerable people dry and some sort of protected from the bitter elements!
Any donation, how ever small, will be put to great use and will be greatly appreciated by all those trying to shelter from the elements in their search for a better life.
Dignity not dispair! THANK YOU.
