The EcoHustler Christmas Appeal

Helping refugees at a time of crisis

Screen Shot 2015-12-04 at 10.27.59 There is a humanitarian disaster unfolding just hours away from where we live. At the Jungle refugee camp in Calais, the desperation is palpable. The French and British governments are carefully not classing the situation as an emergency requiring them to take more action. In the mean time the human cost is huge. This Christmas (19th - 22nd December) the EcoHustler team are heading to Calais to take supplies and help out. Please donate cash to help us buy the most useful items (list below). We can also pick stuff up if you live in London or near Bruton in Somerset (get in touch). A list of the most useful items are below. Thank you so much if you can help!
