Kernow Aid Now is a venture of Project Paul CIC, a not-for-profit social enterprise.  Since Jan 2016 we have supported a number of activities helping refugees, most notably in producing the double decker bus used by the Unofficial Women's and Children's Centre the Jungle Calais.  A few weeks ago I was asked to look at the caravans currently used by the First Aid and Care Support Teams.  The vans have clearly 'served their time' and are no longer fit for purpose and the rigours of high volume custom as they help many, many refugees on a daily basis.  We've sourced a more robust mobile unit and thanks to the Jersey Calais Refugee Aid Group who kickstarted the project with £2k (and some other kind donors and sponsored 10k runners !) we now have conversion of the unit well under way.  This fundraiser is to gain the remaining money to fit heavy duty flooring, equip with solar lighting , add running water and create an appropriate environment for consultations and first aid care. We'd like to see it delivered and installed in the Jungle camp by the end of May.  In the future, should the operational situation change, then being mobile and 'robust', the unit can be easily re-depolyed to other areas as needs dictate under the management of the Refugee Support First Aid & Care Team as they progress plans to become affiliated with a formal charitable structure.
