Coats urgently needed!
Care4Calais is asking for men’s coats this winter, because cold and wet conditions are descending on the North Atlantic and the refugees face life-threatening exposure in the coming months. Cold weather alone makes life very difficult for the people of Calais, but rain and sleet make the problem so much worse.
That’s why we need your help.
A good winter coat keeps a refugee warm and dry, and enables them to access the other services that our wonderful Care4Calais volunteers provide during the day – even when the weather is bad. Since many of the men in Calais face the winter rains with no insulation aside from their T-shirts and thin trackie bottoms, a thick coat can make such a big difference in their lives. Your donation will help us keep the refugees fed, entertained, and happy despite the harsh circumstances of winter.
If you have any unused coats taking up space in your closet, use them to help someone in Calais stay warm and dry this winter. You can donate a coat you no longer wear to your nearest drop-off point: care4calais.org/thedropoffmap
If you can’t do that, you can give £20 to help buy a refugee a new coat: care4calais.org/donate
