Action for Refugees in Lewisham
AFRIL is a grassroots charity in London, working with refugees and asylum seekers to relieve poverty and social isolation.
We are a small locally run charity based in Lewisham, one of the most deprived local authority areas in England, with a very high refugee and asylum seeker population.
We work to relieve poverty and isolation amongst this vulnerable group, advance their education, and provide services to improve social integration.
Since our creation in 2006, we continue to help an average of 120 people in our local community each week - with education, family support services, and access to emergency supplies.
We are now looking for different items of food, toileteries, household items and clothes to help our clients through the winter months.
Come celebrate winter with Action for Refugees in Lewisham at our first ever Winter Fayre!
Toys, baked goods, children's clothes, fun & games, face painting and so much more!
Bring your family along and support AFRIL's mission to relieve poverty and isolation amongst this vulnerable group, advance their education, and provide services to improve social integration.
If you wish to make donations on the day, we will gladly accept non-perishable foods, toileteries and toys.
Free admission, and fun for the whole family!
