Victims of war and crushing poverty are starving and freezing on our doorstep and we need your help.

Right now, around 5000 people from war-torn and politically unstable countries remain 20 miles from the coast of Dover.

They are subject to appalling conditions with little access to water, food or sanitation. We have experienced great strength and kindness from the people in the camp and have been overwhelmed with their tenacity.

But no human should be made to live like this and the conditions here are getting worse. Following the evictions the camp is severely overcrowded, our resources are stretched to their limits and we urgently need your help to continue distributing aid. Although governments do not recognise this as a humanitarian crisis, you can.
