More supplies urgently needed

More supplies urgently needed

It has been an incredibly harsh winter in Calais this year; snow, hail, freezing wind and torrents of rain have battered the refugees for months on end. For the many people sleeping rough it has been a struggle to survive, impossible to get warm or dry in the sodden, frozen woods and fields.

Our teams on the ground have been incredible, doing extra distributions and staying out in the cold to bring hot drinks and sweet snacks together with desperately needed coats and sleeping bags.

But now our stocks are left scarily low and we need help to continue our work. Key needs are:

* Small men’s clothes, especially trousers, jogging bottoms and coats
* New men’s underwear and socks
* Sleeping bags
* Tents
* High energy food such as dried fruit and nuts
* Waterproof walking boots

For our full needs list please see here:
