Devex | Calais: A humanitarian ‘no man’s land’?
Many of the aid organizations that specialize in setting up and running refugee camps can’t go to Calais. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) lack the mandate to work in France. In their place, volunteer organizations and a smattering of international aid groups have set up shop amidst the endless tarpaulin and scrap metal shelters. Current active organizations include MSF, ACTED, Medecins du Monde, Care 4 Calais, and L’auberge des Migrants.
