The Dunkirk Refugee Women's Centre in Calais has never had a Kurdish speaking volunteer. I am spending my summer providing support for the women who have been forced to flee their homes only to end up in "The Jungle"
"The Refugee Women's Centre is committed to supporting women, families and minors in Dunkirk, and Calais.
I will be the first Kurdish, Sorani speaking, Women's Studies major, who has experience in refugee crisis volunteering to be part of the Refugee Women's Centre in Calais / Dunkirk. I am an independent volunteer who did a month of research before choosing this organization to work with and I am extremely honoured to be a part of such an amazing group of women.
The refugee Women's centre has provided me with a donations list which includes a wide variety of items including **tents, sleeping bags ** for at the end of this month everyone will be forced to sleep outside. I am dedicated to providing all my support and time to help this organization fulfil their mandate of supporting refugee women!
