Ongoing local project: Collection of Knickers for Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre
Soroptimist International Greater London is currently working with the Yarl’s Wood Befrienders to provide knickers, and other essentials tothe women who are detained at Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre. The Yarl’s Wood Befrienders is a charity that offers both emotional and practical support for the women detained in Yarl’s Wood IRC. The detainees arrive with little to nothing, often only the clothes they are wearing. The items donated offer a small token of kindness during a distressing time, and many have said it has improved their well-being.
