The New MSF Camps in Dunkirk.

Today's trip to Calais was a head turner. First we headed to l'auberge warehouse to unloading a few vans worth of donations. Following this a group of us went to the new MFS camp in Dunkirk to build one of Dan Shillabeers amazing shelters and to drop off a van containing some 600 blankets to the cold and weary. It was amazing to see this new civilised and spacious camp housing almost all of the refugees previously living under vile conditions in other Dunkirk camps. It was amazing to see nice clean bathroom facilities, warm huts with appropriate ventilation and even door numbers. All located in a tidy and safe space where the children could run around free and oblivious to the suffering surrounding them. These camps are a great blessing for the some 2500 refugees that it holds, and while they still lack the basic essentials that we so readily take for granted, such as heating, electricity, cooking facilities etc, their health is no longer at risk from their surround elements.
