Mobile Refugee Support

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]
Mobile Refugee Support (MRS) IS one of the few NGOs still in France where clusters of refugees, mainly children, have set up camp as they wait to find a new home. They are often beaten and moved on with their possessions taken away by French police.

Artwork dedicated to Mobile Refugee Support

The artwork created for Timeline 67, Scene 2 is dedicated to Mobile Refugee Support, which will receive 50% of profits made on any products featuring artwork from this scene.

Why this artwork?

In this scene, 12 year old Anna is being helped to escape a desperate situation. The situation in France is also desperate but widely ignored by international organisations and the media. Children have had to flee from their homes where their families have been murdered or threatened with murder by ISIS. They cannot go home. If they return they’ll die. The UK had pledged to take them but that promise has not yet materialised. They are waiting for a safe place to call home but meantime they must find some hole or corner where they can escape being beaten and abused just because they are there. And winter is fast approaching. They have no beds and no heat. What will become of them then?

Mobile Refugee Support provides mobile aid, consolidation and support to refugees and displaced peoples and is currently based and operating in northern France targeting locations that have been neglected by governments and larger NGOs.

MRS supplies basic essentials and necessities that enable more bearable conditions for those stranded without homes or safety in foreign countries, including relevant, helpful and up-to-date information.

Access to power is an integral part of their distributions, with each visit accompanied by a generator that can be used by up to 300 individuals at a time.

The team currently consists of a handful of dedicated and experienced humanitarian aid workers. Donations, whether financial or material, enable them to continue the work that many would be disadvantaged without.
