Sleeping bags needed in Paris

Sleeping bags needed in Paris

Imagine being so scared of being found by the police that you sleep outside on the ground without even putting up a tent. Refugees are sleeping rough in ditches and fields around Calais, in the freezing cold and rain, with only a sleeping bag or blanket for shelter.

On the streets of Paris, the police take down tents as soon as they are erected. With temperatures of minus six degrees, a blanket is just not enough.

We’ve found ex-army sleeping bags with a gortex outer that are waterproof and breathable. For £30 they are the only way we can think of to keep people alive in terrible conditions that they should never be in in the first place.

Please donate £30 now to buy a waterproof sleeping bag for a refugee this Christmas at

Huge thanks to Jungle Canopy for donating the first 150 sleeping bags!
