Who are we ?
Utopia 56 is an association created in January 2016 in Brittany to manage volunteers over the Calais jungle. The association then managed the first humanitarian camp in France when it opened in Grande-Synthe near Dunkirk from March to September 2016.
With more than 9,000 members (in July 2018), we shelter teenagers without their parents, we help with food distribution, we collect and give sleeping bags, both in Paris and Calais. We operate in several other regions of France (Quimper, Toulouse, Lille, Saint Brieuc, Lyon etc.).
You too, you can volunteer to help refugees, from half a day to one day.
