CALAID Edinburgh is a group of volunteers collecting urgently needed donations for those living in the Calais refugee camps and across Central Europe.
Says a spokesperson: “We believe that no person should be without access to basic human rights like shelter and warmth, and by collecting donations we can work to improve these conditions.”
The CalAid team are now looking for a Central Edinburgh warehouse space to store and sort donations prior to shipping to the refugee camps.
The spokesperson added: “If you have warehouse space located centrally in Edinburgh and you are willing to donate, then please contact Joanna or Keefe urgently at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This project is entirely not-for-profit and all money raised will go directly towards providing aid for those in need.
“You can make a monetary donation on our Crowd Funding page: https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/calaid-edinburgh
