Please ‘Give a Pack’

Separated Children arrive in the UK alone, dishevelled, dirty, vulnerable and traumatised after an arduous journey and having lost their parents.

Please help give them dignity, warmth and comfort by sponsoring an arrival pack containing the essentials for the first few weeks of their experience in the UK.

Why should you ‘give a pack’

Children receiving packs report increases in feelings of being welcomed, comforted, treated like a human being with kindness, dignity and respect.

Feedback from our partners

One of the boys that received one of the packs was very emotional to know people out there want to help children like him. He described the bag as awesome – he particularly liked the hoodie, raincoat and gloves because there were nice and thick and he was not cold anymore. Once again thanks for your support it really makes a big difference.
Birmingham’s Children Trust

Some of the young people are very dirty with filthy clothes when they arrive so the donations are very much appreciated. They have clearly been put together with great
care and love. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped make this happen, it really is much appreciated.

Imagine…

Imagine having to flee your homeland because of war, terror, or persecution…

Imagine being a child or young person…

Imagine not having your parents with you because they were killed before you left or were unable to leave…

Imagine arriving in a strange country, seeking asylum, completely alone…

Imagine having absolutely nothing.

Now imagine
being able to help.
