When the camp was demolished in November 2016, 10,000 refugees were dispersed across Europe of which over 1,000 of them were unaccompanied asylum seekeeing children. 

 

Alison has collected and delivered aid to Calais and Dunkirk since Sept 2015. She ran art workshops for the children in the Calais Jungle until it was demolished and continues to support refugees in UK and across Europe.

 

This series of paintings "We are all Refugees" are made in solidarity with everyone who is displaced due to war or regime. 25% of all sales goes to Help Refugees.
