UPDATE 10 July 2017
WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON NOW
Lots of stuff going on at the moment!
Yemen - we now have a contact that will enable us to provide aid directly into Yemen. We are one of the very few small charities that will have that access. Please help by donating to our Justgiving campaign or text YEME00 £10 to 70070 to donate to St Albans for Refugees and make a difference today. Don't forget to gift aid your donation if you can.
Uganda - we have a contact in Uganda who will help StAR to work with South Sudanese refugees in Kampala. We will update you when we have a plan.
Syria - we are working on supplying medical supplies and equipment to Syria. We are collecting wheelchairs, crutches and other walking aids as well as medical gloves and bandages. Please check your first aid kits for bandages that are out of date. As long as they are still wrapped we can use them.
Calais/Dunkerque - we continue with our trips to the Calais warehouse to support refugees still in the Dunkerque and Calais ports and also to provide assistance for refugees in Paris and other areas of Europe that the warehouse works with.
At home - we continue to work closely with the Refugee Council and Herts Welcomes Syrian Families to settle refugee families in Hertfordshire. We recently helped one family with finding schooling and we also provided English as a Second Language teaching.
Fundraising - donations always happily received and you can see how to do that here.
We do have the happiest volunteers!
