A FOOD PACK FOR COSTS £50

The refugee crisis is the greatest humanitarian issue of our generation and how we respond will define us for years to come.

Our work with European Refugees

We have been providing food packs and other essential support to refugees in regulated and unregulated camps in Greece and Bosnia since 2019. We now plan to help the desperate refugees stuck in Calais.

Greece

Refugees in Lesvos, Greece have escaped from war zones, crossed hostile borders, and braved the sea, only to end up on the Greek island of Lesvos, where the EU’s racist, xenophobic, and Islamophobic migration policies intensified during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bosnia

Bosnia-Herzegovina became the main hub for migrants hoping to reach wealthier European countries after authorities closed the previous migration route through Serbia and Hungary in 2016. Now it’s the shortest possible way to access the EU

In response to a plea for help from a desperate family stuck in the snow on the border we first started our relief efforts in Bosnia, when we helped hundreds of families with food, winter clothing, shoes and materials to repair shelters.

Since then, our partner Salam Aldeen has visited the Bosnian border multiple times and our distributions provide foodpacks to families living in horrendous conditions. The situation on the border is unlikely to change anytime soon, with more and more refugees traveling across the route. Consequently, as one of the only charities assisting these desperate and displaced families, it is inconceivable that we can stop efforts to aid and assist as best we can.

Calais

The refugee camp became notorious in 2015, as 1 million people fled war and danger to come to Europe. Years after it was demolished, 2,000 migrants are still waiting there, at the centre of a political storm.

Please donate to our European Refugee Appeal and help us, help those who are suffering every day in horrible conditions.
