Project Report | May 8, 2023
Thank you

By Refugee Women's Centre | Project leader

Six years ago, the La Linière camp burnt down, and the only official camp in Dunkirk that has ever existed came to an end. It had been opened just a year earlier by the town of Grande-Synthe and Medecins Sans Frontières. In the camp, displaced people used to have wooden shelters and the Refugee Women’s Centre was an indoor space with a community kitchen and free shop.

Since then, informal camps have sprung up and been dismantled, without any plan to open a new official and recognised camp, even though the situation remains the same as before. The RWC has been a mobile service ever since, going into the informal camps with vehicles and bringing material support to women and families who are not sure where and how they will sleep at night. It has been a year and five months since the current informal camps have been deprived of running water. As we look back over the last six years, the living conditions have only gone downhill, and basic human rights have been increasingly infringed upon.

The RWC maintains its presence and support on the ground despite these challenges.

Thank you for your continuous support!
