Direct, Independent Caravan Donations
Jungle Canopy will usually cover all aspects of preparation and delivery of donated caravans to refugee families in the Calais Jungle.
If you would prefer to deliver your own caravan, we are happy to provide any support you require. If you would like us to share our contacts, or to offer any advice, please contact our team.
The situation in Calais is fluid and the attitude of the French CRS (riot police) changes with the wind. If you contact us before you plan to arrive, we can provide you with up to date information, and recommendations for gaining entry to the Jungle.
We will also be able to let you know about any families or vulnerable people we have identified as being in urgent need.
It may help to know how we prepare a caravan for deployment. Caravans are so welcome in the Jungle. They’re not actually as warm as an insulated wooden shelter, but they are always preferred by refugees. This is because they’re so clearly a “home”. They have windows, curtains, beds, cupboards…
We try only to deliver caravans in which we would be prepared to stay ourselves. We aim to make every donated caravan, as beautiful as possible.
