A smart clothes distribution in Calais
This weekend we were able to do a special distribution in Calais. We had 300 new, branded tracksuits to give out. A real treat when many of the clothes we get are second hand so tops and bottoms never match.
One of the best bits was seeing people immediately put on the new jackets, and sometimes even the new trousers. A couple of them asked for plastic bags to keep their new clothes clean and one boy said he was going straight back to his tent to put his somewhere safe.
Overall it was just great to have something nice to give to people who have so little. No one should be sleeping outside in these conditions today. Thank you so much to all the donors who mage this distribution possible. You can buy new clothes for a refugee at care4calais.org/donate-now/
