Mobile Refugee Support (MRS)

Creating new solutions to the problems refugees face daily.


The team, September 2019

WHO: MRS was founded in 2017 and offers support by utilising technology to meet the needs of displaced peoples living across northern France. Providing everything from basic survival items and foods to power generators and WiFi tools (hand-built using recycled goods), the team provide a truly unique, life-sustaining service to the refugees they encounter.

WHERE: Based in Calais but targeting locations neglected by governments and larger charities, the team work closely with other grassroots organisations to ensure they can reach as many people as possible throughout the week.

HISTORY WITH US: In 2018, hearing about the unique works of MRS, O’s Refugee Aid Team began to expand their donation capacities to assist them in their works.

WHAT THEY NEED: MRS consistently need tents, sleeping bags, tarpaulin, funds for food stocks, mobile / smartphones, charging cables, batteries and emergency supplies. For their most recent goods call-outs, please SEE HERE.

WHAT WE PROVIDE: Whatever goods we have capacity to raise as needed by the team, and funds for depleting food stocks and emergency supplies (e.g. tarpaulin, tents etc.)

PLEASE NOTE: As part of our policy and out of respect for those receiving our gifts, we do NOT deliver second-hand or damaged goods. All goods donated to us for the MRS must be brand new, except for mobile / smartphones (these need not be new, but must be in a usable condition).
