CALAIS: OUT TO LUNCH
No Borders activists in Calais have started distributing food to migrants to fill the gap left by holidaying charity Salam. After initially taking one meal a day to the ‘jungles’, activists are now distributing large quantities of rice, veg and locally donated bread, and helping prepare food in situ.
Salam, which normally provides breakfast and dinner, is away for six weeks, leaving the migrants with just one meal a day. When they return, the charity that provides lunch, Belle Etoile, will go on holiday for four weeks.
Most of the migrants are now sleeping out in open jungles after the squat sheltering many of the Africans was forcibly closed down.
