SOS Tents

person by tentThe L’Auberge des Migrants warehouse in Calais distributes donated tents to the approximately 1000 refugees, 200 of whom are children, who are hiding in fields and waste land. However, when the French riot police (the CRS) find them they destroy them immediately and pepper-spray or tear-gas all other belongings.

We need to help the refugees survive next winter. We are creating a simple design for a tent that can be made from surplus materials using volunteer labour in both Cambridge and Calais.

Join us to design and build some SOS tents!

This is an ongoing project – if you are unable to come in June we would still love to hear your ideas, and will be organising more tent sessions later in the year. Email Tony King on
