A student paramedic from Hemel Hempstead is travelling to Calais this December to provide medical aid to people in French refugee camps.
Bartek Kusmierz, 20, who is studying at the University of Worcester, will travel with 13 other student paramedics on his course to help individuals who are in need of life saving medicine.
The self-funded project aims to support individuals who have been forced to escape their home, are suffering with a number of diseases, and are facing abuse on a daily basis.
Bartek told HemelNews that funds donated, will be utilised for buying possibly life-saving medications that these people desperately need.
He added: “We are going out as it is approaching Christmas, and these individuals have nothing. Our aim is to provide them with medical aid, clothing and medications.
“I feel helping one another regardless of ethnicity, age, sex and sexually is so important as this is what is going to make our world a better place.
“These individuals have been forced out of their homes, living in inhumane conditions and with serious infections and diseases. Many, have not had a proper meal in days, many die every day.
“The money gathered will be utilised for medications, clothing (as it is winter) and medical equipment.”
