We are delighted to have achieved the £200 target amount which will be used to get the van and supplies to Calais. any further mony we raise will be spent on more targeted supplies and aid such as medical/first aid and camping equipment. We can (with further funding) assess the need on the ground and meet it.
To bring basic aid (toiletries, first aid, bedding and clothing to those refugees currently stranded in the port camps in France.
About the project
Carol and myself are planning an aid mission to France to see what can be done (even in a small way) to help those who for whatever reason, find themselves stranded in Sangatte or more recently in Cayeux-sur-mer. Politics does not figure on this trip, if a man finds that his situation is so unbearable that he feels the need to flee his home and leave all that he loves behind then we have no choice but to treat that man with compasion and care. We are mostly in need of cash, first aid equpment and bedding. We have a little over 5 weeks to achieve our goal and appriciate any help given.
