I have been volunteering in Calais with Refugee Community Kitchen and the School Bus Project since January 2018. RCK make 2500 meals a day for displaced people living rough in Calais and Dunkirk. The SPB provides a safe space, language exchange, music, games and internet access twice a day every day.
The situation is very much still in crisis. The number of refugees arriving is going up whilst the number of volunteers is going down. The media has lost interest in the situation here, but that doesn't mean that young men, women and children aren't sleeping outside in minus temperatures.
To enable me to stay for longer I'd like to raise £300 to cover my small living costs from now until June. Any excess funds will be donated to RCK/SBP.
If you want to come over and volunteer yourself or have any more questions, just send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much for your support x
I have written a blog about my experiences here for those interested - https://evieofftheface.wordpress.com/2018/01/21/calais/
