Since 2015 and to this day, the Refugee Women's Centre has been present in the camps in northern France to provide displaced women, children and families with basic services and material support. This includes individualised material distributions and providing access to medical support, to information, to legal advice, and to emergency accommodation.
Unfortunately, after over six years of delivering services, Choose Love (formerly Help Refugees) who is our major donor has informed us that from January 1st 2022, we will no longer have the option to renew our funding due to their internal strategy changes. This leaves a gap that was not possible to anticipate, and that we are currently working on resolving.
We need your help to continue our actions on the ground. This is especially urgent as we are entering winter, the hardest period of the year.
This funding project can allow us to maintain our activities with women, children and families and to continue to support them. Being the only charity present in Northern France that focuses on displaced women, we do not consider stopping our activities to be an option.
