Auction: Refugee Community KitchenRead more ...
A group of event organisers, chefs, caterers, journalists and activists - have banded together to help the refugees living in the camps of Calais and Dunkirk. They have created a kitchen to provide warm, nourishing food for refugees, including many woman and children, forced to live without adequate shelter or basic provisions in water-logged, muddy and freezing conditions on a landfill site.
The kitchen provides over 2,000 meals a day, making a valuable contribution to the lives of those fleeing wars and finding refuge in Europe, but they need your help to keep providing this lifeline for those most in need.
"I remember a friend of mine who was a refugee from Serbia telling me in the 1950s how grateful he was for the Red Cross food parcels that he and his brother received in a camp on the outskirts of Vienna. To him, the food represented more than nutrients – it made him believe that the outside world wanted him to live."
The kitchen is providing far more than much needed sustenance. Please bid generously and let those in need know that they are loved and valued.
The kitchen also needs volunteers. You can find more info: hereClose.
