FAST provides quality first aid to displaced people, migrants and refugees across Northern France and Brussels. FAST strongly believes in the fundamental human right to being treated with dignity and respect and upholds this attitude in its day-to-day efforts helping and assisting people forced from their homes by violence, persecution, and poverty.
Ultimately, FAST hopes that no one will need to suffer any more in the camps on Calais and Dunkirk and that the United Kingdom and French governments will provide safe, legal routes of passage to stop the ongoing human rights abuse. As part of the larger network, FAST does its part to safeguard that all displaced people get access to basic health care and remain free from violence.
FAST continually advocates for displaced people on its social media channels and cooperates with other organisations in the field.
Many displaced people suffer from injuries that can easily be taken careof, such as sores, scratches, and bruises. Others suffer from skin diseases, infections, or flu. FAST treats these conditions and provides emergency first aid.
Human Aid Now supported FAST in 2019 and resumed this support in September 2021, providing a stipend for the coordinator in Calais and contributing to the project’s expenses when necessary.
Since 2016, HAN has provided more than 80 tons emergency supplies like blankets, food and medicine, mostly donated by our partners and supported more than ten Heroes in Thessaloniki, Samos, Patras, Calais and Bosnia amongst others. HAN spends 100% of funds on its goals and are matched 50-100 fold in value (8 mio Euro’s) by donations in kind and contributions by other NGO’s.
