Funding for our trip to volunteer for Refugee Community Kitchen, Calais
There is a refugee crisis happening right now. Refugees are people who have to flee their homes to escape war and prosecution. Unfortunately many refugees end up in unsafe, desperate conditions in refugee camps or on the streets. If you happened to be born in a war torn country, this could be you.
In January this year I went to Calais with my dad to volunteer with Refugee community kitchen and raised over £1000 to bring over needed kitchen supplies. Refugee Community Kitchen have served over 2.5 million meals since 2015 to displaced people in Northern France and homeless people in London.
This time I am also bringing 3 friends and we are asking for donations to fund the travel and accommodation of the trip. The cost of the travel and accommodation is £355 for the 4 of us (with my dad funding his own). We will take a van load of donations from Aid Box Community and any extra money raised will be spent on more needed supplies to take over.
When we are there we will help prepare and distribute meals, sort through donations and prepare other needed supplies.
