A wet and muddy Dunkirk
Today Dunkirk was wet and muddy. It rained most of the day, and this was tough for the refugees as earlier in the week the police had once again been in and taken sleeping bags and slashed up tents.
We arrived mid afternoon and distributed 120 sleeping bags together with packs made up of dry socks, hygiene kits and dried fruit to give people a small lift. We also did some targeted distributions of tents, tarps, boots and backpacks.
The day ended with a guy who made a great deal with us when we ran out of boots. He said if we gave our last pair to his friend, he would take his friend”s boots as they were not in bad condition but didn’t fit well. Smiles all round.
