Faced with the ever increasing flow of migrants in Calais and the deterioration of living conditions, EliseCare decided to intervene to help these populations victims of the war.
Despite the adoption of reception measures in Europe and in France, the populations fleeing the conflicts continue to live a dramatic situation once our borders are crossed, living in precarious camps where hygiene and medical care are sorely lacking .
"In the Grande-Synthe camp, near Dunkirk, nearly 3,500 men, women and children tried to reach England every night."
It is in this context that in February 2016 EliseCare sets up in Calais.
To relieve the pain of the refugees, she created a mobile dispensary in Calais, present until October 2016.
A team of volunteer acupuncturists, physiotherapists and osteopaths have relieved the pain of refugees from the Jungle of Calais by offering them consultations, care and psychological care.
In just over 6 months, EliseCare acupuncturists carried out5,412 consultations in the Calais jungle for the benefit of 3,083 beneficiaries for an operating cost of 10€ par consultation.
