The Jungle

We are delighted to be able to volunteer alongside care4calais this week, an English charity offering vital humanitarian aid to the many refugees who are fleeing conflict and who have now arrived in Calais. Many young people make up part of the population of the 'Jungle' in Calais where the living conditions are cold, wet and more than appalling. As we see violence continuing in the Middle East affecting some of the children with whom we already work, we felt it important to gain some first hand knowledge of the situation of the refugees who are fleeing such terrible conditions.
