In September 2015, Making Herstory decided to gather a team of avid supporters to identify issues facing women and children refugees and provide what relief we could to families living in the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp of Calais.
From October 2015 to June 2016, our supporters have enabled us to distribute urgent aid in the form of shelter, bedding, pre-packed backpacks, food packs, children’s goods, clothing, medicines and whatever else identified as a core need, to vulnerable refugees forced to reside in the camps of Calais, France.
Thanks to your ceaseless support of our works, we have been able to complete NINE emergency aid convoys to date, commencing as of 18th September 2015, and followed up on 27th September 2015; 30th October 2015; 12th December 2015; 12th March 2016; 28th May 2016; 26th June 2016, 2nd July 2016 and 8th October 2016.
In the meantime, we have also been working hard to identify and solutions for refugee women and children entering the UK, whilst lobbying the UK government to aid and shelter far more refugees than it has pledged to do so with the speed, efficiency and in the numbers so desperately needed.
