Warm clothes or a new school uniform
This gift will cover the cost of a set of new clothes for a refugee, making sure they’re wrapped up in a scarf, hat, and a proper winter jacket to brave the cold or kitted out for their first day at school.
After fleeing from persecution or violence, many refugees and people seeking asylum arrive in the UK with few possessions, or sometimes, just the clothes on their back. Our services help them access the items they need most - including clothes.
Yasiim, who grew up in Somalia, wasn’t prepared for the temperatures over here in the UK and, crucially, had no way of buying what she needed to get by.
“It’s freezing cold here - the coat itself is £40 or £50. What are we going to do? We can’t survive in this country if we can’t work or don’t have enough money.”
Gifts of kindness are changing the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum across the UK, thanks to you.
