Right now, the UK Government is starting to move asylum seekers into the former RAF barracks at Wethersfield. The Government plans to house up to 1700 at the base, which is totally unsuitable for people who have fled war, persecution and torture.
The location of the base is remote, the buildings are in a state of disrepair, and as a former military base the environment is likely to retraumatise refugees who have been imprisoned in brutal military facilities in their home countries.
The asylum seekers at Wethersfield desperately need clothing and support. We can organise this, but we urgently need local volunteers, and donations. Could you help the asylum seekers in Wethersfield? Please donate and/or volunteer if you can: https://care4calais.org/wethersfield/
