Only very rarely do I bring something to your attention that needs donations of money, but I’m doing so today.
The One Spirit Ashram Kitchen is feeding hundreds of people every day in the Jungle at Calais. The Jungle, if you aren’t familiar with the name, is the place where, in nylon tents and makeshift shelters, thousands of refugees are stranded, having made it across the sea to Calais (France) in the hope of starting a new life in Europe.
From here in the UK, people are constantly organizing trips with clothes and blankets, tents and sleeping bags – the necessities of life. I presume the same is true across Europe.
The One Spirit Ashram Kitchen is run by volunteers, and provides a basic hot meal each day to the hundreds standing in line, until the food runs out.
But the cold and wet winter weather is setting in, and every day more people are coming in from the sea, the numbers swelling.
Please, please – if you can possibly help by sending some money for food and to build a bigger kitchen, will you consider doing so? Will you ask your church to help? Just do what you can.
