After an epic weekend of sorting through the mountain at the warehouse (thank you volunteers; it was an absolutely brilliant one!) we have discovered that a large proportion of what we have is items currently not needed in Calais or Dunkerque and so we will be sending a lot of this excess to Idomeni and the Syrian border over the coming weeks.


Now we have a handle on stock levels, in order to keep stocking the 5 distribution points as well as the women's centres across both the Calais and Dunkerque camps as well as our mobile distribution team (who visit every single shelter to find out what is most needed) we are desperate for the following items.

NB if you have ideas about companies / organisations / UK collection points who could help with quantities please email calaisdonations@gmail.com.
