News footage and information coming out about what is happening in Afghanistan has been truly shocking and it is hard to imagine the trauma experienced by Afghan people, especially those whose lives are threatened. Those who have managed to escape have come with nothing and are in need of basic essentials.
RWC is working in partnership with West Sussex County Council, Sussex Aid for Refugees and other local charities involved locally to meet this need.
If you would like to help and are able to do so, there are a number of ways you can do this.
Sussex Aid for Refugees has a wish list to purchase toiletries and other items which will be delivered directly to Sussex Aid.
You can also make a contribution to Refugees Welcome Crawley via JustGiving:

Our focus is on short-term emergency aid at the current time. In the coming months and over the next five years, we may also be called upon to help resettle Afghan families arriving in the Crawley area on any of the Afghan Resettlement Schemes, in a similar way to our ongoing support for Syrian refugee families.
Many thanks for your support.
