Collections for Refugees - see newsletter for details. Our link is through Celia who writes about it here. Link to HAAD website.

I mainly work through HAAD because I started many years ago driving trucks to Kosova and more recently to Greece. Due to the current problems no trucks are going, so they are going to send pallets of aid so we will only send the barest essentials. 

In the last few years I have also worked in Calais, doing first aid. and when I go I load up the car, if not full of people and take what ever stuff I can find to give to Care for Calais. who provide immediate help to arriving refugees.  

Interestingly many young people go out and work with Care for Calais, and it is truly inspiring to see what an amazing contribution they make. 

Thanks  Celia
