HELP NEEDED IN LA LINIERE (Dunkirk) via FB

posted 10 Sep 2016, 08:45 by Chris Cox   [ updated 10 Sep 2016, 08:50 ]
The Refugee camp La Liniere in Grande-Synthe, Dunkirk still needs food and volunteers to help every day. 

They need help in the Kesha Niya Kitchen, free shops, community kitchens, workshop, laundry, Women and Children's Centre, Children's Centre, Adult Learning Centre because the French association Utopia 56 is leaving to work in Calais and Paris and so the remaining associations have to take on a  lot more work to keep the camp running on the same level.

If you want to deliver food and volunteer in the camp, please email  kitchen@keshaniya.org
It is important that you send your license plate 48 hrs before the drop off and details of donations to kitchen@keshaniya.org - otherwise you will not be allowed into the camp. The Kesha Niya Kitchen phone number is: 004915756840726

If you want to  register as a volunteer in Kesha Niya Kitchen please email  volunteer@keshaniya.org with your full name, dates when you are available, contact number and email, and whether you have a driving licence/whether you are coming with a vehicle.
Food and accommodation is provided for volunteers.
