l`auberge des migrants - calais refugee support camp

An important hub in Calais for logistical support for the Calais "Jungle" refugee camp and homebase for (amongst other organisations) Refugee Community Kitchen. Here approximately 2,000 hot and healthy meals are prepared daily and brought to the nearby camp. For some of the refugees this is the only meal they will eat in a day. The two large warehouses also act as a storage facility for (amongst other things) clothing donations and tents. Theres also a large scale operation to prepare wood for refugees who cook for themselves as well as heating in winter. This grassroots operation is made up of volunteers mainly from the UK and France but also many other Europeans. The positivity and tireless work of the volunteers is both inspirational and overwhelming.
