Help for Afghan Refugees
Caritas Westminster contacted the Companions on Wednesday 25th August to ask whether we could help with supplying clothes and toiletries to some refugees. Over 200 Afghan refugees (men, women and children) had arrived from Kabul this week and are being housed in a hotel in Victoria. They had no clothes or toiletries. Within 36 hours over 4,400 clothes and toiletries were boxed up at the Companion’s Cafe by a team of hard working volunteers and delivered to the hotel on Thursday night. It was a busy night as whilst this was being sorted, the hall and outside area was serving 50 homeless guests with supper and supplies.
