Mobile Refugee Support
Wat doen ze?
Mobile Refugee Support was established in June 2017 following the destruction of the Calais Jungle and La Linière camp in Grande-Synthe. Since then we have offered mobile aid and support to displaced people living in and around northern France.
This organisation is currently based in Calais from where we attempt to target locations that have been neglected by governments and larger charities. We work closely with several other grassroots organisations based in the area, as well as larger international NGOs.
MRS provides a variety of services, including access to basic essentials and equipment in order to enable more bearable living conditions. Additionally, we provide communication support, including daily services of access to power and WiFi for up to 500 people at a time.
Waarom is het belangrijk om hen te steunen?
Furthermore, our teams offer a range of specialist services such as personalised food packs, phone repairs and the provision of relevant up-to-date information for those stranded without homes or safety in foreign countries. Over these last two years we have developed and finely tuned many of our procedures and services to fit the needs of the individuals we support.
Hoe kan je helpen?
We are an independent volunteer-run organisation. We are always in constant need of donations in order to allow us to continue to maintain all of the services that we provide.
Even small donations make a huge difference. We couldn’t do this without your generosity.
Mobile Refugee Support’s work in the field depends entirely on the hard work, time and dedication of our ever-growing family of volunteers.
Volunteering with MRS gives massive insight into the situation which currently exists on our borders, and the struggles being faced by the innocent people caught there. Even a short time spent with us can widen the worldview of the most news-aware individual.
Whether your strengths lie in languages, administration, driving, logistics, electronics, or simply working with people, your help will be gratefully received.
