About this campaign

The Unofficial Women and Children Centre Calais has changed its name to MEENA. MEENA means LOVE (Pashto), the place we are coming from.

Meena is a new centre for refugees in Birmingham, set up to continue our work which we started in Calais with women and children asylum seekers and refugees. The new centre is supporting women and children (and single male carers), offering a safe space and facilitating access to support and information.

We are doing outreach work to connect and support women and young people and make sure they are accessing the services that are available to them. As a collective and in partnership with other organisations, we will run drop-ins, workshops, classes, events to support integration, independent living skills, understanding ‘rights’, along with activities to enhance quality of life.

Meena strongly believes and promotes equality and as part of this all people visiting and volunteering in the Meena Centre will be members of the space. It is a shared space which all members contribute to and are a part of.

Please donate today to support refugee and asylum seeking women and children in Birmingham.
