Groups providing emergency food, clothing and shelter are at risk of closing down.

Following severe funding cuts in Winter 2021, grassroots organisations working with displaced people in Calais and Dunkirk face a dire funding situation that threatens their operations.


Despite the media silence, there are thousands of men, women and children still suffering imhumane conditions in Northern France. Thousands of people are sleeping rough, in unofficial living sites or under bridges in the city-centre. They face constant harassment by the police, and it is estimated that evictions happen every 48 hours. 


They're all facing a winter with no food, shelter or basic protection. With the cold closing in, conditions will be worse than ever before. People will become more desperate, and more people will lose their lives if we don't act now.


Without sustainable funding, our efforts to support people on the move will become dangerously restricted.


It's up to all of us to show people in Calais that they haven't been forgotten. Please donate what you can today.
