Women for Refugee Women

Women for Refugee Women do mainly work with women in the UK but we are shortly launching a project in partnership with Help Refugees to support women in Calais. We would love donations (as in money) but also we love it when people sign up to our newsletter and we can let them know about our actions and events and campaigns.

The Worldwide Tribe

Our mission at The Worldwide Tribe is to highlight the humanity behind world issues, inspire global community and leave a legacy of positive, social change.

We use creative storytelling to bring a personal, human perspective to world issues and have been working within the refugee crisis for the last year. We also aim to lead by example by investing in grassroots projects that make a direct difference to the lives of those in need. Our two pronged approach raises awareness, whilst also maintaining a presence on the ground.
