Taking a break for games on distribution in Dunkirk
‘At Dunkirk last Sunday, I spent the afternoon at the games table. I did a lot of colouring with two young girls – lots of love hearts and flowers! The girls used my phone to take photos of their work and to take some videos during the day too.
Afterwards, me and two guys played noughts & crosses and Jenga, and they taught me how to write my name in Kurdish. I love seeing both children and adults enjoy a couple of hours of games. Games allow us as volunteers to connect and communicate with the refugees despite language barriers.
The team distributed over 200 pairs of warm trousers – much needed after the recent evictions which have left people with next to nothing, and no way to dry their clothing on a wet and cold day. As usual, we also helped hundreds of people charge their phones to keep in touch with friends and family, mended clothes and shared some hot drinks in between rounds of games and music!’ – Connie, Care4Calais volunteer
