Over the past few weeks we have seen harrowing images of refugees making treacherous journeys to find safety. The situation has quickly escalated into what is being called the biggest humanitarian crisis Europe has seen since WW2.
Calais Refugee Support Hillingdon has been set up to organise and facilitate the collection of much needed donations to be delivered to the refugee camp in Calais. camp in Calais.
We are working closely with the CalAid (https://www.facebook.com/JoinCalAid) who are working in the camp and have communicated to us what items are needed. We have partnered with CalAid, who are working in the camp and monitoring the situation closely in order to communicate to us what items are needed.
