Migrant help needed, could that be you ?

Autonoom Centrum is setting up a new feeding, medical, cultural, legal and clothes center in Calais and we need volunteers.

We will be providing all that the asylum seekers need before their difficult journey to England. We are currently working with Syrian and Eritrean peoples here in the Netherlands who are preparing for the last part of their trek and we are looking to expand that work by opening a new center in Calais so we can help them right up until the last moment.

We need volunteers with skills in the following areas

Medical training - doctors and nurses. Many have walked long distances and need treatment to feet etc plus they are often suffering from malnutrition.

Legal - it is vital that migrants and asylum seekers know their rights to ensure the Fascist English government cannot expel them illegally once they reach there and also they need advice and sample documents to help them claim their benefits and housing needs.

Food preparation - Can you cook food that reflects the cultural and religious needs of people from all over the world, or do you want to learn ?

The new center is going to be open near the Jungle camp and will be open in about ten days but we need volunteers now.
