‘I moved from London to Calais to tackle the refugee crisis’
The ongoing refugee crisis has led to many people dedicating their time and resources to helping those in need.
Imogen Hardman did just that when she moved from London to Calais to become the new Operations Manager at the refugee charity Care4Calais.
She’s been there since October 2020 and works everyday to provide food and clothing to migrants camping in and around Calais.
“Living in London, knowing that just over the Channel there were people living in really horrible situations, being treated badly, it felt like a way to come over and show people that we do care.”Imogen Harman, Operations Manager at Care4Calais
