The Wishlist

JRS UK is incredibly grateful to have been donated a house to host destitute female refugee friends who find themselves homeless. The house is situated in South London and is managed by JRS UK. It offers refugee women safety and comfort from a life on the street.

Residents began moving into the house last year and we have continued to work together to make the house feel like a home. There are a number of items we are still in need of to ensure the residents can thrive and feel comfortable whilst living there.


The full list of items is below. Items in bold we’re really in need of.


Please get in touch with Amy-Leigh, who coordinates the house, if you have any questions. We really appreciate your support.
