We want to help provide Care4Calais with vital equipment necessary to support the refugees in Calais, Dunkirk, Paris & Brussels, all of whom are sleeping out in the open without bedding or protection.
Last autumn the French authorities bulldozed the jungle camp and dispersed the refugees. But rather than solve the problem, this action has a created a far greater humanitarian threat. The refugees are still there, and many of these are unaccompanied minors who now face a nightly struggle to stay warm and safe. As temperatures plummet, their future is more bleak and uncertain than ever. Lacking even the most basic provision of warmth or shelter, many face the very real threat of loss of life through exposure or physical attack. And it's happening on our doorstep, on our watch, right now. We must take action.
We have teamed up with the AMG group to provide essential life saving equipment to help prevent this humanitarian crisis spiralling into tragedy. This equipment includes: 2 & 3 man tents, sleeping bags, roll mats & hiking boots at trade prices and now ask you, our friends if you can possibly donate a package of ten of one these items.
£96.50 buys x 10 pairs Teko Charcoal Socks
£225 buys x 10 Trek Sleeping Mats
£417 buys x10 3x3 tarpaulins
£705 buys x 10 Ultra Lite Pro 300 Sleeping Bags
£676 buys x 10 pairs of Anatom Hiking Boots
£1347 buys x 10 2-man Tempest Pro Tents
£1443 buys x 10 3-man Halo Tents
We have personally already donated one hundred sleeping bags to the Care4Calais and now would like to hit a further target providing one hundred bags and roll mats, one hundred tents and at least one hundred pairs of hiking boots to help keep feet dry and warm this Winter.
We thank you in advance for your attention to this cause and for your generosity.
