We’re Barts Refugee Crisis Foundation, a new society that aims to promote the health and wellbeing of vulnerable displaced men, women and children globally.
The Refugee Crisis Foundation was initiated in 2015 and inspired by a group of volunteers that were appalled by the suffering of refugees. The world witnesses thousands of refugees fleeing conflict and oppression and risking their lives to travel to foreign countries in search for safety and a better life. Surely, we all deserve fair treatment, protection and support?
RCF is committed to helping vulnerable refugees living in overcrowded and poor conditions. They are a passionate organisation connected through the common goal of raising awareness of the crisis situation and organising independent projects and trips responding with crucial aid to whoever and wherever it is needed.
As a society we want to be the voice of the charity and raise awareness amongst our peers of the atrocious conditions refugees live in. We hope to hold many exciting events and fundraisers to get the student community more engaged! Most importantly, refugees and their individual stories are at the heart of our society.
We have three simple aims:
1) Raise Awareness of the refugee crisis around the world
2) Support the dental and medical services provided by Refugee Crisis Foundation and increase student involvement through elective and research projects
3) To collaborate and network with like-minded organisations to further our cause
