Help Refugees are a charitable organisation who support the lives of refugees, and continuously strive to ensure that they do no harm to those whose lives they touch. They endeavour for their impact to be positive and always work towards making it this way. Their aim is that those they assist can say that their lives (and prospects) have been improved by allowing Help Refugees to assist them, by bringing them dignity, hope, respect and humanity.
Working with extraordinarily effective small groups and organizations that have sprung up in response to this humanitarian crisis, Help Refugees respond where the need is greatest, whether that means providing food, clothing, shelter, funding or more. Unburdened by bureaucracy, they’re able to respond quickly and effectively.
They now fund more than 80 projects across Europe and the Middle East, making Help Refugees the biggest facilitator of grassroots humanitarian aid on the continent.
Their rigorous, up-to-date needs assessments mean your donations will always go where they’re most needed.Donate
Through theatre and art, Good Chance creates new kinds of communities, empowering artists from across the world and connecting people, stories and cultures. Founded by British playwrights Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson, Good Chance established its first temporary theatre of hope, an 11m geodesic dome, in the heart of the refugee and migrant camp in Calais in September 2015, promoting freedom of expression, creativity and dignity for everyone. It has since travelled to London’s Southbank for a nine-day festival led by refugees in July 2016, and opened its doors to refugees, artists and local Parisians in the French capital for eight weeks in spring 2017 in partnership with Collectif MU and Theatre de la Ville and for ten weeks in spring 2018 in collaboration with humanitarian NGO Emmaüs Solidarité. At the invitation of the Mayor of Paris, the Good Chance dome will return to the French capital in summer and autumn 2018. Alongside the dome theatres, the company creates groundbreaking Good Chance Productions and works with a collective of artists from across the world through the Good Chance Ensemble, most recently supporting the creation of the album ‘Sounds of Refuge’ by John Falsetto and Mohamed Sarrar, recorded at Abbey Road Studios.
Good Chance is an Associate Company of the Young Vic Theatre and recipient of the Evening Standard Editor’s Award (2016), an Empty Space Peter Brook Award (2017) and the Genesis Award (2018).Visit Website
