We are a group of people from Faversham and nearby villages who work for justice & the relief of suffering for women, men & children who, forced from their homes, seek refuge from war, oppression, poverty & climate catastrophe.
Please note that for the time being there will be no monthly meeting. Unfortunately the situation has not improved enough for us to get together in a “live” meeting. Recent new laws stipulating that only 6 people can meet at any one time are further restricting the right and the chance to meet up. As soon as it becomes safe for members and supporters to congregate again, we will let you know.
Be safe and stay healthy, everyone. Thank you for your understanding.
Our activities so far include:
- Collecting donations of money, food, clothes and more for people in the camps of Calais, Dunkirk and beyond;
- Supporting those among us who go to volunteer with the humanitarian relief and solidarity efforts in France, Greece and elsewhere;
- Creating opportunities, such as market stall days, to talk with our fellow townspeople and villagers about the crisis facing displaced people;
- Lobbying those in power to do more to alleviate the suffering of displaced people making perilous journeys and to support and welcome those in the UK as they try to rebuild their lives here.
We are always open to suggestions for other activities, and we welcome your ideas.
