CHildren and women centre
The children's bus. There are 290 children without parents currently living in the jungle. It was bought thanks to a crowdfunding campaign so that he children could have a little safe haven in the middle of this dirty mess. And there is an incredible lack of volunteers at the moment! Our friend, Sophie Besse, with who we went to the jungle for the first time carried out a very successful Crowdfunding campaign alongside actress Juliet Stevenson to acquire this double decker :) Magic does happen!
The warehouse... Incredible space, guerilla organisation, lots and lots of donations. Don't be fooled, a friend majnoun still slept in the cold on Monday night, with no blanket or sleeping bag. It restores a bit of faith to know that 450 sleeping bags were sent this way within 48hours! That seems to be the key, finding and working towards some sort of sustainability at all levels for the refugees : human bonds, basic living requirements, distractions/activities...
OUr wonderful little playtime workshop with the children. They all took turns at the centre of the parachute while we lifted them up and down, giggling in sheer joy! a very precious moment !
