Mobile activities at La Chapelle
Migrants and refugees trying to reach the United Kingdom found themselves stranded in northern France, unable to proceed beyond Calais.

In Calais, the number of inhabitants in the ‘Jungle’ – an informal camp for refugees and migrants – increased from 3,000 to nearly 10,000 between September 2015 and September 2016.

The lack of sanitation and exposure to the elements here and in other informal camps in northern France, had significant consequences for people’s health, such as skin diseases and respiratory infections.

We started working in this area in 2015, filling gaps in services provided by other organisations, and adapting its activities as needs arose.

Teams also ran a centre for unaccompanied refugee minors in collaboration with other organisations and offered psychological support.
