FAST is a friendly collective of UK, Belgium & The Netherlands based health professionals & support staff coordinating shifts for personnel from healthcare background, across Calais on a short to long term volunteer basis. We are not an organization, but a group of volunteers, with aims similar to yours and thus unable to provide assistance with indemnity cover. Due to the legalities involved, most of the time we are unable to work in a medical capacity, in a foreign country, but because of our prior healthcare knowledge we have been successful in the following: helping refugees wound care advice and bandaging (most common), advice on use of over the counter medication, first aid care and assisting patients to access appropriate emergency healthcare while distributing general donations. We strongly believe in each individual’s right to being treated with dignity and respect and apply this basic human right in our day to day efforts in helping and assisting refugees around Europe, during these difficult times.
We are always looking for volunteers for Calais and Dunkirk. We are especially looking for dentists, medical doctors, nurses and first aiders. If you want to help out, but have another professional, feel free to send us a message!
100 % of your donations goes to providing first aid and support to the refugees in Calais and Dunkirk. You can donate supplies or through our BT-Donate page.
