How to support the actions of Caritas for refugees

The migrant’s warehouse in Calais is one of the activities that the Secours Catholique-Caritas France for these populations leads. Our wish via this activity is to give better living conditions to the migrants. This action complements itself by a help for seekers of asylum, dialogue with the communities in Calais, exchange and co-work with NGO’s present in Calais and dialogue with the authorities.
