Refugees in Paris have been deserted by Europe

Stand in solidarity

COVID-19 update (October 2020)

MARDi is still providing frontline medical care to refugees living in the Paris Refugee Camps and we need volunteers to join our team, both medical and non-medical. Ever-changing international travel restrictions mean like most grassroots organisations we are struggling to maintain a full team of volunteers, therefore we need your help more than ever and especially for longer-term placements (1 month +). Free accommodation may be possible for long-term volunteers, subject to availability.


MARDi is an international network of healthcare professionals and support staff providing medical aid for refugees and displaced people living in the Paris Refugee Camps, France. We provide frontline medical care in the camps and work with many other services to deliver all-round support. Since 2015, the number of refugees living in unofficial camps in Paris has fluctuated between 1,000 and 4,000, surviving the harsh French winters in broken tents on food provided only by volunteer groups and with very little access to healthcare.
